The Center for Academic Innovation invites you to an exciting Innovation Insights Research Talk featuring William Bork, researcher and former K-12 educator in the United States, Taiwan, and Mexico. 

Large-scale studies investigating the academic outcomes of immigrant learners, like the PISA assessment, can tell us a lot about certain experiences but often only focus on data related to students’ destination countries. In this talk, Bork details that while destination country data is useful, incorporating more origin country characteristics could provide a more complete picture of the immigrant student experience and explain variations in academic achievement.

A Zoom link will be provided upon registration. We hope to see you there!
