The CTL 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. Language Diversity and Teaching Communities are small, interdisciplinary faculty learning communities that explore some of the following questions:
- share ideas about teaching,
- learn new strategies for supporting students from diverse language and cultural backgrounds,
- develop or redesign teaching materials,
- engage in discussions with guest speakers,
- and develop a sense of community.
- How do we best support students of diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds so that ALL students in a course are challenged and enriched by the learning environment?
- How can faculty across disciplines guide students in becoming competent members of a diverse, global community?
- How can we make sure our course content is accessible to students of a variety of linguistic and cultural backgrounds?
