Languages Across the Curriculum Workshop

Join us to learn about creating and teaching LAC courses at UNC (additional teaching stipend offered for LAC courses) LAC courses combine content with language. By using the foreign language to teach the topic, instructors help their students become more knowledgeable about the topic and the culture surrounding it. The goal for LAC/CLAC courses is to use multilingual resources and multicultural perspectives in approaching course topics. Students and faculty in LAC/CLAC courses, in any discipline, use primary resources in the applicable language(s) to enhance their research and study of the material. LAC/CLAC course formats include one-hour stand-alone courses and one-hour recitation courses attached to other UNC courses. Registration is required. Please contact Dr. Michelle Gravatt gravatt@email.unc.edu to register.
