Did you know that nearly 20% of Case Western Reserve University’s students are international? Living and working in a highly internationalized environment like CWRU comes with many benefits, including increased innovation, broader worldviews and greater opportunities to engage with partners worldwide. There are times, though, when teaching in multi-national classrooms can be challenging, too.
The University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education (UCITE) will host a First Fridays event in February with Elizabeth Miller from the Center for International Affairs to discuss practical ways to increase participation and involvement in your classrooms. Participants are encouraged to come prepared with questions and creative ideas to discuss with the group. Miller is an international educator with eight years of experience in China, and more than 10 years of experience in American higher education.
This session will be held Friday, Feb. 3, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Allen Memorial Medical Library. Register to attend.
