CELLTR-ISTLD Grants Collaboration: Four faculty members selected for the Integrated Seminar Series on Inquiring into Your Multilingual Classroom
In the spring of 2018, CELLTR collaborated with the Institute for Study of Teaching and Learning in the Disciplines (ISTLD) to offer $24,000 of grant funding for faculty inquiry projects. Associate professor Dr. Sonja Luehrmann (Sociology & Anthropology) lecturer Dr. Tun Myint (Health Sciences), and Senior lecturers Andrew Hawryshkewich (SIAT) and Michael Sjoerdsma (Engineering) have been selected as recipients of the Inquiring into Your Multilingual Classroom: An Integrated Seminar Series and Grants Program.
The grant supports faculty members in gaining a better understanding of the needs of students for whom English is an additional language. Each participant will receive up to $6,000 to explore teaching and learning issues related to multilingual and culturally diverse students. Dr. Roumi Ilieva, Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education, has led this initiative on behalf of CELLTR.
