Supporting Faculty to Assist Multilingual and Multidialectical Students


The PELS' approach to supporting multilingual and multidialectical students begins with supporting FAU faculty.

The PELS Team is available to support faculty by:

  • hosting faculty workshops
  • providing support material/handouts
  • meeting with individual faculty and departments    

We are happy to discuss:

  • The linguistic and cultural challenges that multilingual students face and share resources on second language acquisition
  • Effective ways of commenting on second language students' writing
  • Inclusive classroom discussions and team projects
  • Inclusive assignments and  assessment practices
