Teaching foreign language across the curriculum is a means to internationalize courses commonly taught only in English. Students develop an enriched understanding of their chosen course of study while enhancing language skills in their second language. Educators bring world languages into areas of study beyond the typical foreign language and literature classes. This prepares educators and students for the cross-cultural and multilingual demands of global society.

Join UCIS for a one-day workshop for graduate students and faculty interested in teaching FLAC. Dr. Rob Anderson, LAC Coordinator from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill will direct the workshop. A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.

There is no cost to attend the event, but pre-registration is required. Pre-register at http://flacworkshop.eventbrite.com/?s=77926837
