Our workshops help instructors make their pedagogy more accessible and inclusive for linguistically and culturally diverse students. Short presentations, in-depth discussions, and hands–on activities will aid instructors in deciding among approaches and strategies for teaching multilingual students. Our workshops create plentiful opportunities for colleagues across the disciplines, ESL professionals, and ELLWC staff to exchange ideas about international (ESL) student support.
