Teaching Culturally and Linguistically Diverse International Students in Open and Online Learning Environments: A Research Symposium  

June 17 and June 18, 2021  

Windsor, Ontario (Virtual) 

There is an increasing number of international students engaging in the open and online learning world. Some of these students enroll in fully online coursework, while others engage in online learning at the individual course level, both of which require varying degrees of synchronous and asynchronous participation. Faculty are asked to teach these courses despite minimal training and knowledge on best practices when teaching and engaging international students in this new way of teaching and learning. With COVID-19, nearly all educational institutions are offering most course work online, creating the urgent demand to better understand the learning needs of online students.  

This spring, we will be hosting the International Teaching Online Symposium to delve into the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse students in online and open environments. We are currently looking for researchers to present during our Concurrent Scholarship Sharing Sessions on Day One of the symposium.   

Topics, which can be research or practice-based, can include:  

  • Best practices for teaching in an open and online learning environment   
  • Ways to enhance international student learning online   
  • Ways to enhance international student satisfaction with online teaching and learning 
  • Other topics related to teaching international students in open and online learning environments
