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 summarized key areas of discussion from the TESOL convening and followed up with next steps for serving ELs in higher education.
Panelists included researchers, program administrators, and education technology experts focused on serving English learners.
