In higher education, demographic shifts as well as growth in international student enrollment means that institutions are faced with the challenge and opportunity of serving English learners (ELs) on their campuses.
A recent white paper by American Institutes for Research describes the diverse motivations and experiences that shape a student’s experience as they learn English in a higher education environment and addresses how institutions can better support student needs. The white paper served as the foundation for a convening of researchers, practitioners, and program administrators at the TESOL 2018 conference.
In this webinar we will summarize key areas of discussion from the TESOL convening and follow-up with next steps for serving ELs in higher education.
Panelists include researchers, program administrators, and education technology experts focused on serving English learners.
