Date:
Wednesday, January 14th 2015
Start Time:
11:00 AM
Session Length:
1 Hour
Room:
310 LSC
Description:
This talk will explain the concept of Culture and Language across the Curriculum (CLAC), a method that enables global learning across disciplines (e.g., business, agriculture, family studies, engineering, biomedical science, business administration) through the use of a foreign language. Students become better prepared linguistically, culturally and professionally for a global market because they are able to talk about their major discipline in the second language. The benefits of developing a specific curriculum with the support of a foreign language have been proven to be very efficient as it provides meaningful and relevant content to learners and opens door to professional opportunities. The presenters will share concrete plans for extending global learning in a variety of disciplines and will seek to work with faculty/departments interested in developing such plans or courses within Colorado State University.
Goals and Target Audience:
• to promote all CSU disciplines through the use of a foreign language, • to show how foreign languages can be relevant and enhance any other curriculum across campus • to strengthen students’ experience and prepare them for a global market and network • to develop a network within CSU that could implement a variety of CLAC models • no foreign language knowledge is necessary to attend this session • Audience: anyone who is interested in internationalizing their discipline to better prepare their students.
