Language and Diversity Teaching Community Fall 2017

By: taylorreeves737   Published 7:30 am / August 29, 2017

The Center for Teaching and Learning has partnered with Boise State’s English Language Support Programs to offer an extended experience to help faculty be prepared for and take advantage of our increasingly cross-cultural and multi-lingual classrooms.

The Language Diversity and Teaching Faculty Learning Community (FLC) will be a group of six faculty members from across the disciplines who will meet biweekly (seven sessions) to explore topics related to teaching and working with multilingual students.

Meetings will be held two Tuesdays a month from 9-11 a.m. on Aug. 29, Sept. 12, Sept. 26, Oct. 10, Oct. 24, Nov. 7 and Dec. 5.

Participants will:

  • Explore and discuss common texts
  • Share ideas about teaching with an interdisciplinary group of faculty
  • Learn new strategies for supporting students from diverse language and cultural backgrounds
  • Develop a sense of community
  • Earn $500 in professional expenses upon completion of all the FLC projects.
  • Attend and participate in all meetings
  • Come to the CTL prepared for meetings
  • Discuss classroom challenges
  • Discover student and faculty resources
  • Design or redesign a syllabus, a classroom strategy, an assignment, or a method of assessment
  • Complete an individual project related to your classroom teaching
  • Complete and present a group project to inform the wider faculty
