April

Teaching and Learning Across Cultures

Monday, April 11, 2016 from 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm

Join our panel of multilingual professors who will share stories about their varied experiences moving between educational systems in different countries. With connections to varied disciplines and varied parts of the world, our panelists discuss what assumptions about the roles of teachers and students were dominant in different settings; they will also discuss whether and how the curriculum and typical work in their fields varied as they moved from one system to another. The ensuing discussion will help us all understand how advanced literacy in multiple languages is achieved. Participants will develop a richer understanding international educational experiences.

This event is offered in conjunction with the Blackboard Jungle
