International student panel
Whose Line is It Anyway? : Plagiarism and the International Student in the University Classroom
In this workshop, participants will be led through a discussion of plagiarism and international students. Topics covered will include the cultural, moral, and technical dimensions of plagiarism. Practical suggestions for helping both international and domestic students understand and avoid plagiarism will be offered.
Assessing Non-Native English Speakers Across the Disciplines
This workshop will focus on fair and valid assessment of non-native English speakers in university classes across the disciplines. We’ll review foundational concepts in assessment and discuss applications in the classroom, identify techniques for reducing cultural and linguistic bias and promoting valid assessment of discipline-specific content, and explore the value of formative assessment for all students. Participants will have the opportunity to talk about their own assessment practices. Bring an idea for a new assessment which you'd like to discuss with the group or questions on your existing assessments.
International Student Experience at UD
Do you ever wonder how to best reach the international students in your classes? Here’s a chance to ask them directly. Join us for a Q & A session with a panel of UD international students. The panel of students will include representatives from a variety of backgrounds, considering factors such as country of origin, gender, major, and graduate/undergraduate.
