A teaching and learning conversation with:
Dr Doris DippoldUniversity of Surrey
When: Tuesday 22nd March 12:30-13:30 (60 minutes)
About this conversation:
Internationalisation is now a reality in higher education institutions across the world. University strategies tend to carry large banners advertising internationalisation as a strategic goal and a desirable ability, whilst their marketing often focuses on an institution’s ability to turn students into global graduates.
This Teaching and Learning Conversation focuses on the issues university tutors and lecturers encounter when teaching linguistically and culturally diverse groups. Rather than focusing on cultural difference, it will discuss the linguistic issues participants encounter when using English as an educational lingua franca, and how to address these.
It will also provide a space to discuss the role of the ‘home’ student, who tends to be neglected in the discussion on internationalisation in higher education.
