Event description
The University of Surrey has students from over 120 countries. Many of the students in your lecture or seminar may have English as their second language. This means that they may find both the language and norms of practice challenging and unfamiliar. Lecturers also may find it daunting to cater for a diverse group of students. This workshop will first challenge some of the myths of the ESL student, and examine areas of teaching and learning students and lecturers find difficult to manage. We will also consider the benefits of teaching diverse groups of students, and share best practice for ensuring that our lectures and seminars provide both linguistic and other support for ESL students.
Learning outcomes:• To become aware of the benefits of linguistic diversity in the classroom;• To become aware of the challenges for ESL students;• To become familiar with strategies and techniques for supporting all students;• To consider how to embed tasks to scaffold ESL learners in large group and small group teaching.
Session aligns with the following UKPSF Dimension(s) ():
Areas of Activity (A): A1, A2, A3
