Academic Outreach Online Roundtable Discussions: Outreach to International Students

  • 1.  Academic Outreach Online Roundtable Discussions: Outreach to International Students

    Posted Mar 06, 2017 05:24 PM

    The ULS Academic Outreach Committee offers a series of Online Roundtable Discussions on topics related to Academic Outreach endeavours.  

    March’s Topic: Outreach to International Students

    This month’s discussion will focus on how libraries approach outreach to international students. We will talk about reaching international students, customizing outreach based on the unique cultural and educational backgrounds of students, and how the library can help international students overcome challenges they face on campus. Come prepared to talk about what you’re doing, share ideas, successes, and lessons learned. Join us for a lively discussion and leave with great ideas to bring back to your library! 

    Each discussion will last 1 hour and be limited to 9 participants and 1 facilitator (like a face-to-face roundtable discussion).

    All discussions will be hosted on Google Hangouts on Air/YouTube Live. The sessions will be recorded and posted to the ACRL ULS Academic Outreach Committee YouTube Channel.
