Symposium on LAC (Language Across the Curriculum)
at IU and Beyond

June 16, 2010, 9am-3pm, The Center for the Study of Global Change (201 North Indiana Avenue, Bloomington IN 47408)

The Center for the Study of Global Change and the West European Studies Center at Indiana University are hosting a day-long symposium on June 16th about Language Across the Curriculum within higher education. Two national experts on this subject, Dr. Tanya Kinsella from University of North Carolina and Dr. Jan Martson from Drake University, will lead the conversations that will explore the future of LAC at IU and elsewhere.   

The symposium will assist advanced language instructors, department chairs, staff, and administrators in the skills and concepts needed to develop Language Across the Curriculum courses and to further broader LAC initiatives on campus.  Topics will include a discussion of different LAC models, content considerations, language pedagogy, instructional materials, use of technology, student learning outcomes, assessment, and curricular integration.   The workshop will be free, though please RSVP to Hilary E. Kahn as space is limited.

The basic schedule is:

8:30am  Coffee and muffins will be available

9am-10:30am  Introductions and Overview of LAC (including what is happening at Drake and UNC)

10:30am-12pm  LAC Models to consider (including discussions on assessment, pedagogies, learning objectives, technologies, etc.)

2pm-3pm: A discussion about what is already happening at IU and elsewhere.  What resources exist?  What are the possibilities at IU and elsewhere?  What models would be appropriate?
