Presented By: Stephanie Lindemann, Associate Professor, Applied Linguistics & ESL
An equitable response to students’ negative evaluations of instructors with international accents acknowledges that such evaluations often stem from students’ limited exposure and biased attitudes towards diverse accents. Given the importance of global/intercultural fluency for career readiness and life in a globalized world, universities have the responsibility to proactively address this issue by equipping students with the necessary skills to effectively communicate across linguistic difference. Dr. Lindemann will discuss the research demonstrating the role of the listener in poor comprehension of speakers and present an iCollege module that can be used to help shift the dynamic to one in which all participants are held accountable for successful communication.
