With a rapid increase in the enrollment of international students in U.S. higher education institutions, more and more faculty members have encountered challenges in teaching international students. In this session, facilitators will use Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) data to discuss faculty approaches to the engagement of their international students. Facilitators and participants will discuss the strategies faculty members employ in teaching international students. Goals of this session include understanding the challenges that faculty members face in teaching international students and discussing the implementation of effective teaching strategies in participant’s courses and campuses.
