EMI Workshop Series – Differentiated Instruction: Diversity as an Asset

By 04/25/2023May 12th, 2023No Comments

University students come to our classrooms with diverse experiences and expectations. Diversity is often viewed as a challenge, instead of an asset. Particularly within EMI classes, faculty can find it difficult to accommodate the various needs of an increasingly diverse student body. In this interactive workshop, we will explore an expanded definition of diversity, discuss scenarios that have occurred in EMI classes at NCCU, and consider ways that differentiated instruction and shared responsibility for learning lead to an enriched learning environment for students, faculty, and teaching assistants.

In preparation for the workshop, think about a case where a student or group of students had trouble meeting class expectations. If you feel comfortable sharing the case, please email a brief description (1-page or less) of the scenario with the subject of ‘Case Study for EMI Teaching Training Workshop’ to by May 9, 2023.
