How Language Centers Thrive: Notes from the Field
Lecture | October 11 | 3-5 p.m. | Dwinelle Hall, B-4 (Classroom side)
Rosemary Feal, Executive Director Emerita, Modern Language Association
Berkeley Language Center
During my years as executive director of the Modern Language Association, I learned a great deal about what makes language teaching effective on college and university campuses in the United States. I recently completed a project looking at language centers to determine what makes them thrive, what challenges they face, and what role they might play in the future as language departments are showing a downward trend in their offerings and staffing. Participants will be given the opportunity to explore these issues with respect to the Berkeley campus.
