The Linguistics Colloquium series presents Dr. Dawn Bikowski discussing “The Role of Linguistics in Global Learning” on Friday, Jan. 31, from 12:55 to 1:55 p.m. in Gordy 301.

Bikowski has a Ph.D. in Education, Curriculum & Development and is the Director of the English Language Improvement Program (ELIP) at Ohio University.

Abstract:  In this presentation, Bikowski will give a brief overview of global learning and discuss how to apply its concepts within the field of Applied Linguistics. Many of the core concepts of global learning (e.g., intercultural competence, appreciation of and comfort with diversity, value of supporting different learning styles and student-centered learning) are also integral to Applied Linguistics. Having a Linguistics background is quite beneficial, since a realization of the importance of these areas is growing across many fields and in all levels of education. Learn how to apply global learning concepts to a variety of teaching contexts. This presentation is based on Bikowski’s recently-published book, Teaching with a Global Perspective: Practical Strategies from Course Design to Assessment.
