The workshop covers:

Personal Cultural Awareness

Participants discuss the general cultural theory that guides working with international students and learn who VCU's international students are and the particular challenges they face.

Culturally Responsive Teaching

Participants explore the particular issues international students face in U.S. classroom, how faculty can best respond to and support international students, and what resources are available to help faculty and their students.

Academic Integrity and International Students

One of the topics of greatest concern to faculty, is that of international students violating U.S. standards and expectations of academic integrity and conduct.  Participants will review VCU's Honor System and learn the reasons behind and best practices for responding to and preventing academic integrity violations.

 


Faculty who attend will receive a Global Zone sticker for their office, so that international students and scholars will recognize you as a campus resource.
