Limited Capacity seats available

Open Session Limited to 50 Participants (First-Come, First-In). This session is held in a large ballroom with two sessions happening at the same time but at opposite ends of the room.

As post-secondary institutions accept greater numbers of international students, instructors are faced with myriad concomitant challenges. Now Mary-Anne Neal shares strategies for engaging international learners and maximizing their contribution to the classroom and online learning environments. In Canada, Mary-Anne has taught undergraduate learners from 17 countries; in China, she has taught courses for the B.A. in Tourism and the M.A. in Educational Leadership. Her approach incorporates core components of RRU's Learning and Teaching Model, with a focus on collaborative, experiential and authentic learning.  Participants will leave with practical strategies for student engagement that can be applied for online and face-to-face teaching.
