Feedback form is now closed.
TAs and TMs often face challenges related to teaching multilingual students and assessing their work. Questions arise around what constitutes appropriate feedback on language errors in term papers as well as how to increase participation in discussions. This interactive session addresses such concerns by introducing TAs/TMs to best teaching practices that support the academic success of multilingual students.
By modelling linguistically responsive teaching and learning strategies in real time, the facilitators will lead participants through engaging activities that explore the linguistic landscape of SFU, the benefits and challenges of teaching multilingual students, classroom case scenarios, and effective approaches to teaching and learning.
Participants will develop an appreciation of multilingual students’ linguistic repertoire, awareness and understanding of their unique needs, strategies to support their success, and knowledge of other resources and support available at SFU for multilingual students.
