Teachers’ Lounge: International Perpectives in the Classroom

September 28, 2016
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Butler Library Room 212

Teachers’ Lounges are series of informal discussions about teaching practices and the culture of learning at Columbia. In keeping with the CTL’s ongoing support for inclusive teaching practices, the theme for this semester’s Teachers’ Lounge series is Engaging International Perspectives in the Classroom.

On September 28, we’ll be discussing experiences, discoveries, and teaching strategies of international graduate students. What has been surprising about the habits and assumptions of Columbia undergraduates? And how can the insight of international instructors help develop critical perspectives on the American classroom? Alan Kennedy, International Teaching Fellow Coordinator in the American Language Program, will join us for this open conversation.

Any current or future instructor at Columbia is welcome. There is no registration for Teachers’ Lounge — if you are interested in the topic and available, just drop by! Pizza is available for all participants.
