A recent study of Ratemyprofessor.com found that students often express linguistic bias against instructors who are non-native English speakers. In this interdisciplinary session, participants are invited to share their challenges and discuss ways to overcome disempowering experiences.

Part of the International Scholars Forum co-sponsored by TEFD and the Graduate School Office of Professional Development; all international faculty, postdocs and grad students are welcome.
