Writing Across the Curriculum
As international students constitute a growing percentage of the student population at Ohio State, many instructors are finding that their classrooms are much more intercultural than they are used to, and they are unsure about how to best serve their students in this changing classroom landscape. In this workshop, Writing Across the Curriculum will be airing a documentary entitled “Writing Across Borders,” a project developed at Oregon State University. The documentary’s main purpose is to help faculty, writing assistants, and other professionals work more effectively with international students in U.S. classrooms by addressing some of the most significant challenges international students face when writing for American colleges and universities. This documentary will be followed by a conversation about how to develop strategies for making classrooms more accessible to students with a range of cultural and educational backgrounds.
