Title:When the world grows smaller: Renewing instruction methods for international students
Author(s):Hensley, Merinda Kaye
Subject(s):English as a Second Language, active learning, Cephalonian method, international students
Abstract:Please note: This is a conference proceeding from an interactive session at the 2008 LOEX Conference. Abstract: With globalization diversifying our university culture, American universities are welcoming an increasing population of international students. Librarians are searching for innovative instruction ideas that adapt to international learning styles while crossing cultural and language barriers. This interactive session taught using the Cephalonian method will combine audience participation, visuals and music in an effort to demonstrate and generate ideas among participants. Framed by the overhaul of the University of Illinois’ ESL instruction program, we’ll talk about characteristics of learning styles of international students, share ideas on pioneering instruction segments including online tutorials and games and discuss authentic assessment strategies.
