American universities host large numbers of international students pursuing doctoral degrees, many supported by teaching undergraduates. And, increasingly, those undergraduate students are themselves international students. These demographics require that we all think about intercultural communication and the role it plays in teaching. In this webinar, we will examine how intercultural communication theories can shed light on the interaction between teachers and students, particularly when differences in culture play a major role in the ways we teach and learn.

In this series of biweekly lunchtime workshops for graduate students and postdocs, you will develop essential research mentoring skills for an academic career, particularly one where research is conducted in teams in a laboratory or field setting. Effective mentoring of students is a key skill influencing everything from research productivity to personal satisfaction. Learn best practices for mentoring undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral researchers, and develop your advising and mentoring skills needed to lead a research team.

Problem-based learning is a learner-centered approach where we give students a rich-context, often ill-structured, problem to solve which forces them to learn problem-solving skills and the course subject matter to arrive at a solution. A written report can be a good vehicle for communicating the solution as it forces students to explain the solution in depth and acquaints them with writing conventions for the field.

**Registration for this workshop will be open from 11AM Central Time on January 23 through February 6. This workshop has a cap of 30 students.** Video multimedia is a powerful technology for engaging student attention, demonstrating dynamic processes, and challenging students to activate higher order cognitive skills. However, video snips are underutilized in teaching and learning in part because of technology barriers, steep learning curves, and an unfamiliarity with how best to use video snips for active learning.
