WRITING ACROSS BORDERS
Lindsay Bernhagen, Ohio State
Monday, February 25, Roush Hall 114, 2-3:30 pm
During this workshop, we will discuss challenges and strategies related to effectively supporting international students as writers. After watching the short documentary Writing Across Borders, participants will be introduced to a set of principles for intercultural classrooms developed by Ohio State's Writing Across the Curriculum team. Together, we will reflect particular challenges that arise in increasinly diverse classrooms, and how they might serve as the basis for generating specific tactics to support learning for all of our students.
