Multi-Cultural Classrooms Intensive (3 Workshops in 1 day!)
Facilitating collaborative relationships within diverse student environments
Wed. June 12, 10am-2:30pm, i104, Fennell Campus
Our College and classrooms are becoming increasingly diverse as we welcome students from around the world. This offers many opportunities for learners as well as some identified challenges. How do we effectively connect international students with their Canadian peers and why is this sometimes so challenging?
This 3 part series will address some of the issues that contribute to the challenging nature of integration as well as some practical strategies for supporting an environment where collaboration is the norm.
- Workshop 1: Defining the parameters and significance of integration
- Workshop 2: Best practices for inclusive classrooms
- Workshop 3: Practical strategies for connecting students in the classroom
These workshops were offered separately in the fall and winter semesters and we are providing 2 different opportunities to attend all 3 in a one day intensive in both the spring and summer semesters!
Facilitators: Kelley Hoyt, Teaching & Learning Consultant – International in the Centre for Teaching & Learning; Carol Fleck, Program Coordinator, Business; John Holloway, Professor, Computer Science; Jamshed Turel, Coordinator, Music.
