Supporting English Language Learners on Campus
(brought back after popular demand!)

Who: All Lourdes Faculty and Staff
When: Thursday, March 2, 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Where: ASC Classroom / online

Did you know that Lourdes has over 60 international students, and that number does not account for the additional non-native English speaking students who are here under different legal statuses? Working with English Language Learners in the classroom and various offices may present different challenges, and this workshop is aimed at improving their experiences and success across campus. We’ll explore cultural differences, how to and how not to adjust language use, and simple approaches to incorporating visuals into everyday encounters.
