Building a University-Wide Strategy for Raising English Proficiency Webinar Seminars
For years 7 and 8 of the BUILD-IT extension, English capacity building remains a key activity as part of a larger strategy that will support university partners in the strengthening of English language capacity to enable linkages for regional and international engagements for faculty recruitment and retention, research collaborations, student recruitment, global industry partners, and other global opportunities related to autonomy goals. Stronger English capacity is a means to both prepare students for workforce directly, while also allowing institutions to expand curricular activities connected to labs/industry and embedded credentials. English capabilities will further enable BUILD-IT partner institutions to realize many of the goals embedded in their developing change framework by increasing funding opportunities via higher international tuition and enabling faculty research exchanges to increase quality research funding output and expand publication opportunities.

In continuation of the English capacity building strategy, BUILD-IT will be offering a 4-part webinar series centering on the topic of English capacity building on universities campuses. Several topics including Assessing Needs and BUILD-IT Goals Alignment, Identifying Assets and Resources, Vietnam Case Study with English for Engineering Concepts Pilot, and Student Engagement will be covered over the course of 4 weeks. The desire is that these webinars lay the foundation for continued discussions and deep dives amongst faculty, leadership, and BUILD-IT to identify and strengthen strategies to enable opportunities for increased English capacity on BUILD-IT partner campuses.
