TLISI 2022: Supporting International Students
This item contains media content that is restricted to the Georgetown community.
How can we support international students' learning and writing? As a global university, Georgetown attracts international students and staff, and is enriched as a result of such diversity. Helping international students success requires paying attention to culture and making visible the tacit norms of American academia. In this session, I propose to share some of strategies of engagement with international students. Instead of focusing on the English language deficit, we propose honoring the multilingual background of international students, helping them learn writing conventions, focus on arguments instead of grammar, providing feedback and models on writing papers. Overall, such transparent approach can be used to address international students as well as first generation students.
