Undergraduate International Foreign Language Studies Core Course Workshop

When: Oct 18 2017 (All day) until Oct 19 2017 (All day)
Where: Mt. San Antonio College, Walnut, CA
What:

Enhancing Undergraduate Chinese Language and Culture Studies: Integrating Faculty and Curriculum Development is a 3-year consortium project designed and coordinated by the Asian Studies Development Program, funded through a U.S. Department of Education Title VI Undergraduate International Studies and Foreign Language (UISFL) grant.  The project aims to establish and accelerate the integrated development of undergraduate Chinese area and language studies at two community colleges, a small liberal arts college and a mid-sized state university that are representative of American, undergraduate-focused higher education.

Core Course Workshop in Years 1 and 2 will be organized to further explore the content areas focused on in the Summer Seminars that precede them.  These workshops will bring two relevant Chinese area studies specialists and the Project Director to each campus for two days for content-based presentations in a seminar-like setting for the 6-member campus team and other interested faculty members and students.  The visiting specialists and Project Director will meet with the team members to assess revisions of the course curriculum designed the previous summer. The visiting experts will also: offer feedback on the host institution’s progress in improving and expanding Chinese language and area studies offerings; make presentations to the entire campus community; lead discussions in two to three classrooms; and meet with appropriate administrative personnel.

Most sessions are open to registered participants only. Please contact Professor Allison Frickert  with questions on session attendance.
