Dr. Doaa Rashed

Integrating languages and cultures across the curriculum is an innovative approach that fosters a holistic educational experience. By intertwining diverse linguistic and cultural elements into various subjects, students gain a deeper understanding of cultural competence and global perspectives relevant to their disciplines. This method not only enhances language proficiency but also promotes empathy, cross-cultural communication, and a nuanced appreciation for the rich tapestry of human expression. Ultimately, it prepares students to navigate an interconnected world with cultural sensitivity and linguistic versatility. The talk aims to explore models of curriculum development and assessment to build and sustain CLAC programming in higher education. The speaker also presents current practices in the Language Engagement Project at Rutgers University.
