Professors Stacey Kikendall and Glenn Lester, using Internationalization Grant Funds, conducted discussion/training sessions during the Spring 2015 semester designed to engage faculty on best practices in teaching international students. Continuing these efforts, they are now providing some useful resources for faculty wishing to enhance their teaching of international students.
