Upcoming Events

Brave Space Coffee Hour
Tuesdays, 10-11 a.m.
3-4 p.m.

During this Zoom-based opportunity, you will practice tools, techniques, and terminology for facilitating discussions on potentially troubling topics in your classrooms. You’ll have the opportunity to explore research-based strategies for co-creating knowledge in inclusive classrooms in the company of your peers. These will be no-judgment, brave spaces, so bring your thoughts and questions and a cup of your favorite tea or coffee. To learn more, visit the CTLE events page.

Topic* for Tuesday, March 9 and Friday, March 12: Working with International Students in the Classroom
Guiding Question: If you were going to study for a degree in a place where English is not commonly spoken, what/who would you need?
o What/who would make you feel welcome?
o What/who would make you feel included?
This article on working with international students will inspire the discussion.
*Although this is the topic for the week, Brave Space Coffee Hour discussions tend to be wide-ranging.
