As part of the Center for Teaching and Learning's (CTL) Teaching and Diversity Professional Development Series, the International Instructors Working Group will host a series of working sessions over the spring semester. The group brings together international faculty, graduate students and postdocs to engage in vibrant group-directed discussions and learning. The group meets three times over the course of the semester and will enable participants to reflect, learn from and with each other and implement new ideas into teaching practices.
Facilitated by CTL’s director of programming for diversity, equity and inclusion, Kirsten Helmer, participating provides opportunities to explore in a safe and supportive space how cultural, social and linguistic identities impact teaching and interactions with students.
The International Instructors Working Group meets once a month on a Friday at the Center for Teaching and Learning in Goodell, room 301. Refreshments will be provided.
Dates for the Spring 2020 sessions:
- February 14, 9:30-11 a.m.; “Collaborative Problem-Solving: Challenges and Dilemmas from our Classrooms”
- March 6, 9:30– 11 a.m.; “I don’t understand you! Combatting Linguistic Bias”
- April 3, 9:30-11 a.m.; “Designing and Giving Effective Presentations”

The events are co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning and the Graduate School’s office of professional development.
