Upcoming

CTL Third Tuesday Series

Writing Across Borders
Tuesday, September 16, 1:00-2:00
Lower Evans

The first "CTL Third Tuesday" event of the fall semester from the Center for Teaching and Learning will start our discussion on the global aspect of Summit by featuring a documentary project from Oregon State University about helping faculty to work more productively with international students in writing environments. In the film, Writing Across Borders, students from a broad array of countries and cultures talk about adapting to writing assignments, requirements, rhetorical styles, and teachers' expectations in US colleges and universities, and instructors offer advice on helping international students make these adaptations to do their best work. A screening of the film will be followed by a panel discussion with Mina Ivanova, coordinator of the Center for Writing and Speaking, Jennifer Lund, director of the Office of International Education, and several international students. Please feel free to bring your lunch down to Lower Evans. The video will start promptly at 1:00 but may also be viewed in three parts on YouTube [Link]
