Creating Cross-Curricular and Collaborative Learning Spaces for Pre-Service ESL Teachers and ESL Learners
Presenters: Julie Chi, College of Liberal Arts, Twin Cities; Stephanie Hanson, College of Liberal Arts, Twin Cities; Anne Lazaraton, College of Liberal Arts, Twin Cities
In this panel discussion, instructors and their students in two university programs, the Minnesota English Language Program (MELP) and Curriculum & Instruction (CI), share how they partnered to support the learning outcomes of each class in meaningful and authentic ways. In this collaboration, pre-service English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers in a CI course were paired with MELP ESL students in an academic speaking class to provide the CI students opportunities to administer diagnostic tests, analyze pronunciation and grammar errors, and communicate corrections to their non-native English speaking partners. In turn, the MELP ESL students engaged in authentic conversation with and received one-on-one feedback from (near-) native English speakers gaining training. In addition, students in both courses gained valuable cross-cultural insights from each other. The panel will discuss the logistics, goals, and outcomes of the project and give advice for implementing such international, cross-curricular collaborations.

The University of Minnesota Twin Cities Career Integration Initiative: How Learning Abroad and Careers Connect watch the video!
Presenters: Becky Hall, Office of Student Affairs, Twin Cities; Kim Hindbjorgen, Global Programs and Strategy Alliance, Twin Cities; Antonia Lortis, Global Programs and Strategy Alliance, Twin Cities; Maria Wentworth, Global Programs and Strategy Alliance, Twin Cities
The Learning Abroad Center’s Career Integration initiative focuses on the relationship between experience abroad and career/life planning by communicating the cross-cultural and global needs of today’s workforce. Building upon the proven methodology of engaging partners through the University of Minnesota’s Curriculum Integration model, Career Integration utilizes the expertise of campus partners and seeks to help students identify, connect, and communicate the impact of their experience abroad on their career goals. The Learning Abroad Center and the GPS Alliance are hosting a Career Integration Conference on July 21-22, 2014.

Engaging the Process of Internationalizing the Curriculum in Authentic Sites of Practice
Presenters: Rhiannon Williams, College of Education and Human Development, Twin Cities; Amy Lee, College of Education and Human Development, Twin Cities; Sue Staats, College of Education and Human Development, Twin Cities; Shade Osifuye, College of Education and Human Development, Twin Cities; Mary Benbenek, School of Nursing, Twin Cities
There is growing recognition that successful and substantive curriculum internationalization initiatives require informed practice distributed across a range of institutional contexts and carried out by a range of stakeholders. The more we can understand the complex experiences of individuals as they navigate their own internationalization pathways in classroom and program contexts, the more likely it is that we can provide effective institutional support and resources to enhance this work. Presenters will reflect on a site of practice: a mathematical thinking course that incorporates global perspectives with a diverse student population.  The panel includes, among others, a graduate student who has worked with local immigrant populations and is conducting her thesis research abroad and a professor of nursing who supports intercultural empathy principles within her professional school courses. Presenters will discuss how they have negotiated competing agendas, developed their internationalization toolkits, and sought necessary support and buy-in.

A Journey of Internationalization: a Panel Discussion
Facilitated by Beth Isensee, Global Programs and Strategy Alliance, Twin Cities and featuring Mark Karon, Office of Student Affairs, Twin Cities; Sharon Dzik, Office of Student Affairs, Twin Cities; Marjorie Savage, Office of Student Affairs, Twin Cities
This panel discussion showcases some best practices for working with international students in student affairs units across campus. Leaders from University Student Legal Services, Student Conduct and Academic Integrity, and the University Parent Program will present their perspectives on the efforts of these three units to improve their service to international students. These units have tailored their practices in order to deliver culturally sensitive services to diverse populations at the University of Minnesota. Panelists will discuss the lessons learned from their journey.

Internationalizing a Campus: A Case Study of UMD's Participation in the American Council on Education's Internationalization Laboratory
Presenters: Dennis Falk, College of Education and Human Service Professions, Duluth; Leigh Neys, International Education Office, Duluth
The University of Minnesota Duluth’s (UMD’s) participation in the American Council on Education’s (ACE’s) Internationalization Laboratory provides a case study of the initial steps of the comprehensive internationalizing of a campus. This session will describe the extensive assessment of international, global, and intercultural activities at UMD; it will also explain the process of developing a mission statement, vision statement, campus goals, and student learning outcomes related to internationalization. The systematic plan to achieve the goals and student learning outcomes includes action steps that the campus will take over the next two to three years; other preliminary plans for implementation will also be presented, including initial ideas for assessment. In addition, the presenters will describe the support UMD received from ACE and other members of the internationalization laboratory cohort.

Internationalizing the Sciences? Yes, it's possible! watch the video!
Presenters: Katy Nannenga, Math Science and Technology, Crookston; Brian Dingmann, Math, Science and Technology, Crookston; Vanessa Walton, Global Programs and Strategy Alliance; Nikki Letawsky Schultz, College of Biological Sciences, Twin Cities
Preparing global leaders is becoming increasingly important. The field of biology is no exception: creating global thinkers will aid in the training of scientists to ask questions at a global scale and who are able to work across borders to solve problems and deepen our understanding of the world.  Panelists will discuss the challenges and opportunities of providing biology students with international learning and experiences during their undergraduate education. The presenters will also discuss opportunities to expose all students, even those without the ability or desire to study abroad, to various worldviews and global perspectives. In addition, panelists will discuss unique challenges associated with integrating science classes into study abroad experiences and traveling abroad with student groups with a focus on science education. 

Unique Perspectives on Working with International Students from China watch the video!
Presenters: Meagan Hagerty, College of Science and Engineering, Twin Cities; Mingzhi Li, Global Programs and Strategy Alliance, Twin Cities
The number of Chinese international students enrolling in American institutions has increased dramatically in recent years. In keeping with this trend, the University of Minnesota has seen a steady influx of students from China over the last several years, as well. On-campus professionals and staff must gain new awareness and competencies to best serve the needs of this growing student population. Participants in this session will gain a better understanding of Chinese cultural norms and how these norms intersect with U.S. culture and higher education. Individuals will also participate in activities to assist in understanding language barriers as well as gain a basic understanding of Chinese name pronunciation.

Global Perspectives and Strategies: UMN Extension's Strategy
Presenters: Renee Pardello, Extension, Twin Cities; Kevin Clancy, Humphrey School of Public Affairs, Twin Cities; Ameido Amevor, Humphrey School of Public Affairs, Twin Cities; Rachael Winger, Humphrey School of Public Affairs, Twin Cities; John Vreyens, Extension
The ability to adapt to change and respond to critical issues affecting peoples’ daily lives and the nation’s future is what the U.S. Extension System has done for over a century, and does well. More and more local issues are influenced by the globalization of the financial, service, manufacturing, and agricultural sectors of our economy. Likewise, the changing demographics in the United States are creating new opportunities and concerns that require new or adapted programming. These changes create both challenges and opportunities and require the incorporation of relevant global dynamics and cultural knowledge into extension’s education, research and values.  In this session, learn about Extension's strategy to integrate global content into domestic programs and collaborate on projects that support extension and rural advisory efforts abroad.

The Nexus and the Neverland: U.S. Domestic Diversity, Public Engagement, and International Education
Presenters: Barbara Kappler, Global Programs and Strategy Alliance, Twin Cities; Anne Phibbs, Office of Equity and Diversity, Twin Cities; Anne D'Angelo, Carlson School of Management, Twin Cities; Paula Pedersen, Chancellor's Office, Duluth
Identifying connections among domestic diversity, international education, and public engagement have been the focus of a two-year long working group at the University of Minnesota. Panelists share their vision and lessons learned from this working group, including research from the President’s Emerging Leader program on intercultural competence. One key component of this work has been the members’commitment to be open to learning how others see limitations in their approaches to constructing the campus conversation. Panelists also share their perspectives on how the U of M can move beyond terminology disagreements and continue to work toward improving relationships and learning within and across the various communities that comprise the U of M.

Mapping Play in Intercultural Communities
Presenters: Akosua Addo, College of Liberal Arts, Twin Cities; Eric Castle, Agriculture and Natural Resource Sciences, Crookston
When captured in story maps, the feelings, interests and values people bring to play spaces illuminate how they make sense of the city and inform policy makers’ decision-making about play spaces. This presentation is a summary of a collaborative effort of two classes from the Twin Cities and Crookston to map play in the culturally diverse Cedar Riverside neighborhood of the Twin Cities. Student researchers examined closely personal play histories and its impact on learning as well as the meanings people ascribe to the places they play. Presenters will discuss shifting and adapting strategies to cope with the realities of the physical space, weather conditions, and ethical and intercultural considerations.

Insights from the Carlson School: Creating Programming to Engage International Students watch the video!
Presenters: Xiaoji Zhang, Carlson School of Management, Twin Cities; Anny Lin, Carlson School of Management, Twin Cities
The Undergraduate Program office (UGP) and Undergraduate Business Career Center (UBCC) in the Carlson School of Management have been collaborating since Fall 2008 to develop international-focused programming that serves the unique needs of undergraduate, international degree-seeking students. Through activities such as networking sessions with faculty members, office hours with international alumni, and a summer job search club, these offerings seek to proactively engage students in experiences that address their unique needs as international students. The presenters will share insights on best practices they have learned through the development of these programs.

Graduating Interculturally Competent Citizens: A college-wide initiative
Presenters: Karl Lorenz, College of Food, Agricultural & Natural Resource Sciences, Twin Cities; Emily Ehlinger, College of Food Agricultural & Natural Resource Sciences, Twin Cities; Connie Tzenis, College of Food, Agricultural & Natural Resource Sciences, Twin Cities
In the Fall 2013 semester, the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS) committed to an initiative to build intercultural competency across the curriculum.  All incoming first-year students in the college took the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) and will take the IDI again at the time of graduation.  Panelists will discuss how the pre-post model has provided accountability for CFANS’ work to enhance intercultural competence in all CFANS graduates, as well as an opportunity to measure success and to collect data to guide appropriate strategies. This session will include a discussion of IDI-based research and will outline the strategies employed in CFANS courses to integrate intercultural learning into the curriculum. Participants will learn about and experience some of the activities that first-year students have participated in through this initiative.  Session attendees will also have the opportunity to discuss potential applications in their own work.

Standards and Competencies Improving Quality in Learning Abroad
Presenters: Martha Johnson, Global Programs and Strategy Alliance, Twin Cities; Tricia Todd, Health Careers Center, Twin Cities; Scott Daby, Global Programs and Strategy Alliance, Twin Cities
The development of quality learning abroad programs is increasingly guided by standards or guidelines and the use of competencies and learning outcomes. New standards are developed in response to emerging challenges or expectations. With leadership from the Forum on Education Abroad, the standards organization for education abroad, the U of M collaborated with national and international partners to develop standards and guidelines to address pre-health programs serving undergraduates. These guidelines were developed as a response to increased ethically questionable student activities abroad. The guidelines help program developers set safe and ethical program parameters that guide program development and assure that students have safe and ethical experiences. This session will explore the evolution of standards and use of competencies and give examples of how they can be used to produce quality study abroad programs as well as bridge content from the home campus to content abroad.

Faculty and Graduate Students Collaborating Internationally
Presenters: Melissa Anderson, College of Education and Human Development, Twin Cities; Donna Whitney, College of Science and Engineering, Twin Cities; Anu Ramaswarmi, Humphrey School of Public Affairs, Twin Cities; Joan DeJaeghere, College of Education and Human Development, Twin Cities; each will present with a graduate student collaborator
Graduate students increasingly have opportunities to conduct research abroad with their faculty mentors.  These collaborations require careful preparation to maximize the benefits to students and to the research projects. They may also involve particular challenges as students navigate different research settings and different ways of collecting data or doing research in another country.  Some of these challenges can be anticipated, while others require nimble adaptations as the project unfolds.  In this session, pairs of panelists will discuss their experiences from the student and faculty perspectives.  These cases will help interested students and faculty understand what to expect in such collaborations and suggest ways to enhance the experiences of graduate students in international research projects.

How to Talk International: Communicating Effectively with International Students Outside the Classroom
Presenter: Sheryl Holt, Department of Writing Studies, Twin Cities
We joke about how to talk Minnesotan, but do you know how to talk international? International students are often frustrated with American conversations, instructions, and explanations as they are attempting to navigate new systems at the university. Likewise, staff and faculty often wish they understood the cultural expectations, communication styles, and accents of international students, scholars, and peers.  This interactive session is an opportunity to share, learn, and practice strategies for communicating well with international students, including avoiding confusion and understanding the cultural expectations of many international students. This session is a modification of a presentation given to 150 staff and medical professionals at Boynton Clinic because of frustrations and misunderstandings in intercultural and multi-lingual encounters. Based on that presentation, Boynton has made numerous system-wide changes to help everyone communicate more effectively. These changes and on-going initiatives will also be described.

Bridging Loan Program: Expanding Access for Student Mobility
Presenter: Brook Blahnik, Global Programs and Strategy Alliance, Twin Cities; Lindsey Lahr, Global Programs and Strategy Alliance, Twin Cities
Learning abroad opportunities and access to these opportunities continue to expand at the University of Minnesota. However, students of high financial need have not participated in learning abroad with the frequency that we would like to see. In early 2012, a group with representation from across campus calling themselves the ‘Financial Barriers Committee’ began meeting to explore solutions to this problem. This session will provide information on their first product, the Bridging Loan Program, and will report on the impact the program is having on access for high need students.

Crossing Boundaries to Create a Learning Mosaic that Fosters Cross-Cultural Understanding watch the video!
Presenters: Catherine Solheim, College of Education and Human Development, Twin Cities; Linda Buturian, College of Education and Human Development Twin Cities; Susan Andre, College of Education and Human Development, Twin Cities
This discussion will explore how the integration of ideas from multiple disciplines, cultures, socio-economic contexts, skill-sets and ways of knowing to the study of phenomena can create a rich learning mosaic that promotes perspective-taking and cross-cultural understanding. Session collaborators include Susan Andre, a visual artist who works in a wide range of media including photography, video, and graphic/information design; Linda Buturian, a writer and teacher who examines issues of water and environmental sustainability, and Catherine Solheim, a researcher and teacher who focuses on family resources and relationships, particularly how they are influenced by diverse cultural and socio-economic contexts. Members of the panel are co-creating an e-book that explores how northern Thai families are impacted by globalization forces, particularly as they affect the Mekong River and its ecosystem. Linkages are made from global to local as we connect these ideas to the Mississippi river and SE Asian immigrant families in Minnesota.

Ignite! Sessions

Ignite! Sessions, a new addition to the conference this year, are 30-minute sessions intended to highlight exciting innovations that are creating paradigmatic changes at the University of Minnesota.

The Human Side of Internationalizing: Supporting International Faculty
Presenter: Shelley Smith, Instructional Development Services, Duluth
The increased presence of international faculty on campus has the potential to create a diversified campus, rich in opportunity for lively cultural dialogues, mutual learning opportunities and a more globally engaged student body and campus. There is also the potential, however, for conflict due to lack of understanding, frustration, and failed mentoring. This session will help participants to understand “differences that make a difference” that are fundamental to the success of international faculty succeeding and accomplishing the goals of internationalizing our campuses.

Significant Learning Activities for Educating Globally Competent Citizens
Presenter: Dennis Falk, College of Education and Human Service Professions, Duluth
This session provides examples of significant learning activities for educating globally competent citizens associated with six dimensions of learning goals identified by L. Dee Fink (2003): foundational knowledge, application, integration, human dimension, caring, and learning how to learn. The learning activities introduced include 1) the Global Village, in which students take the roles of people around the world; 2) Taking Action, which asks students to spend five hours to address a global issue; 3) identifying, studying, and sharing about international conflicts; 4) identifying, studying, and advocating for international non-governmental organizations that address global problems; 5) completing a Political Activity Scale; 6) deciding whether or not to release a new technology; and, 7) making an international micro-loan through KIVA. The explicit relationship between specific learning goals and the learning activities will be explained.

Building an Internationalized B.A. Program from the Ground Up: Cultural Entrepreneurship as Globalized Education
Presenters: Olaf Kuhlke, College of Liberal Arts, Duluth; Michael Mullins, College of Liberal Arts, Duluth
This presentation provides an overview of how the principles and theories behind internationalizing the curriculum have been utilized to build a new, internationalized B.A. program at the University of Minnesota, Duluth: Cultural Entrepreneurship. This presentation will provide examples of both curriculum and course design in order to demonstrate how the new UMD program seeks to achieve significant global learning. Panelists will also discuss the program’s goal of integrating this learning with foreign language instruction.

Bringing a World of Practice to the Classroom
Presenters: Peter Haeg, College of Pharmacy, Twin Cities; Lowell Anderson College of Pharmacy, Twin Cities; Kerry Fierke, College of Pharmacy, Duluth
This session’s presenters have led a course on International Pharmacy Practice & Leadership for three years. The course involves presentations from pharmacists around the globe who share the stories of their professional practice. Students in the course learn about the variety of health systems, health care regulations, health care coverage, practice environments, and patient care from locations of practice as diverse as Brazil, Finland, Kenya, and Taiwan. Practitioners join the conversation via Skype, and the entire course operates via ITV between the Twin Cities and Duluth campuses. Participants of this session can expect to understand the ease of creating connections with global experts in a classroom and the limitless educational opportunities this model makes possible. The goals of courses like this are to broaden students' perspectives, share experiences with leading change, and to open their mind to better understand their own culture and systems.

24 Teachers, 2 Countries, 1 Blog, & Skype: Opening Windows into Teaching Practices in Norway
Presenters: Debra Hartley, Center for Writing, Twin Cities; Cherise Storlie-Kristoffersen, Visiting Scholar, Center for Writing, Twin Cities; Muriel Thompson, Center for Writing, Twin Cities; Kirsten Jamsen, Center for Writing, Twin Cities
In this presentation, leaders of the Trondheim Writing Project (TWP) in Norway and the Minnesota Writing Project (MWP) will discuss their most recent collaboration, which comes out of a three-year relationship between MWP and the Norwegian National Center for Writing Education and Research (Skrivesenteret). This year, Skrivesenteret is conducting its first TWP teacher institute, modeled on the annual MWP Summer Institutes, in which literacy teachers from all grade levels come together to write and share their writing, provide teaching demonstrations, and research pedagogical issues. The panel will present how the collaboration of MWP and TWP has taught us them how to ask for, offer, and accept support across and ocean; what happens when two groups of teachers seven time zones apart seek communication and interaction with each other; how teaching writing in Norway and in the United States is similar and different; and what can be done to further improve the cross-cultural experience of “teachers teaching teachers.”

Cultural Competency: Navigating Cultures in Health Care Delivery
Presenter: Naty Lopez, School of Dentistry, Twin Cities
The patient population in Minnesota is becoming increasingly diverse. This presents a unique challenge, as well as an opportunity for health care providers to provide culturally sensitive care that helps overcome barriers and improves patient care outcomes. Schools of health professions are responding to this challenge by integrating cultural competence into their curricula in order to prepare their students to provide culturally sensitive care to their clients. This session, developed at the School of Dentistry, is an example of an initiative to integrate understanding of cultures, cultural differences, beliefs and practices that influence health and health care delivery into the curriculum. This session will allow participants to develop beginning skills in cultural competence, recognize their own cultural frame of reference, distinguish between useful generalizations and harmful stereotypes about patients, identify strategies to respond to cross-cultural issues in clinical settings, and navigate cultural differences related to health care.
