Rationale
Through this presentation, we hope to provide resources for others about teaching
internationally and TESOL. We feel that these are two areas of teaching that are not
salient in the College of Education, so we are taking it upon ourselves to make this valuable
information accessible and simple for our colleagues. The topics at hand are ones that not
only contribute to the multicultural climate of the modern classroom, but they offer
invaluable resources for teachers who want to teach domestically and abroad. With
increasing globalization, these are facets of teaching that will become very real options for
everybody.
Questions/Concerns

1. Do you see information or topics that are useful to you as an audience?


2. Will our topics be engaging?
