This workshop is a friendly introduction to internationalization.
What is internationalization? Well, it is about much more than recruiting and supporting international students. It’s about creating spaces that are culturally and linguistically inclusive. That means confronting key myths about speakers of English as an additional language, understanding the experiences of international and racialized students, and preparing all students to work in a diverse environment.
To begin your internationalization journey, in this workshop, participants will…
- Learn about the relationship between intercultural communication, internationalization, and EDI.
- Recognize and reflect on their own cultural practices and beliefs as a first step towards internationalizing their practice
- Learn a few key facts about the typical international student experience at UFV
- Explore a few examples of course activities and workplace interactions that are inclusive of diverse cultural perspectives
