Intercultural Engagement in the Classroom

5 October 2016 (Wed) , 12pm - 1:30pm
At Program Room 2

Students and faculty at Yale-NUS College have a wide diversity of background experiences. This diversity is a strength of the College, but it can also lead to some challenges in the classroom. In this workshop, Sara Amjad, Student Affairs Intercultural Engagement Manager, and Kristi Lemm, Psychology faculty member and CTL affiliate, will discuss how to deal with the complexities of culture in your classroom. An extension of the workshop held by CTL in April, this workshop will feature discussions of case studies of intercultural issues built on actual events at Yale-NUS College. We will focus on different communication styles that are used in the classroom and discuss strategies to facilitate effective classroom interaction. Lunch will be served.
