Spoken English Pronunciation for International Instructors a

Storrs Campus
ROWE 318

Do you sometimes feel like you need some help with your English pronunciation, but don't know where to start? It is not unusual for some students to negatively evaluate courses and teaching when they have trouble understanding the instructor’s pronunciation, regardless of the actual quality of the teaching itself. In this session, we will cover some common pronunciation issues involving individual sounds, stress, and intonation, to help international faculty and TA’s identify areas of their spoken English that could be improved for clarity. We will also go over resources offered by CETL specifically targeted towards international instructors.
