UW Professor Emeritus Special Invitation Lecture
The Globalizing University: What the Faculty, TAs, and Multilingual Students Report
The Waseda University Center for Higher Education Studies hosts the “Faculty Café” series as a place for faculty members to discuss and exchange ideas regarding what it means to “Teach”, and how to improve their teaching.
For the 6th Faculty Café of 2019, which will specially be made open to faculty from other universities as well as the general public, we have invited Professor Sandra Silberstein, Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Washington, to give us a special lecture on “The Globalizing University: What the Faculty, TAs, and Multilingual Students Report”.
Professor Silberstein will draw from the results of surveys administered to UW faculty, TAs and international students to provide us with information regarding the globalization of higher education.
Along with posing detailed questions about current academic experiences, we queried the goals of the students themselves, the academic resources they bring with them, and the help they really do use. The results confound stereotypes of international students and the experiences of their faculty.
