Spring 2016 Faculty Conference
Teaching Multilingual Students: From Awareness to Best Practices
Saturday, February 20, 7:30 a.m. – 2:15 p.m.
Metropolitan State University, Saint Paul Campus

SUBMISSION DEADLINE:  January 11, 2016

Learners are increasingly arriving to the classroom with multiple language and cultural proficiencies. Do you have strategies and models to maximize their learning? Do you have ideas for inclusive teaching pedagogies to meet the needs of diverse learners?

We invite you to share your knowledge by proposing a session at the coming Spring Faculty Conference, an opportunity to share your strategies for teaching multilingual students with colleagues.  We invite a broad array of proposals from individuals, teams, or panels of colleagues. 

Each session is scheduled for 75 minutes.  Preference will be given to unique approaches to active learning and sessions which address more than one discipline. Only those proposals connected directly with the conference theme will be considered.

Session examples include (not limited to):

  • Experiential learning
  • Discipline-based pedagogies (multilingual learners in writing intensive courses, STEM, etc.)
  • Academic integrity and plagiarism
  • Student panel discussion
  • International students
  • Implicit bias
  • Intercultural communication
  • Cultural humility and proficiency
  • Adult learning theory
