Strengthening Foreign Language Across the Curriculum (FLAC) Across Cornell

Wednesday, September 10, 2:30-4:30
Stimson 206
Reception following on the Uris Hall Terrace
FLAC has proven to be a successful means of supporting students' use and expansion of foreign language skills by adding a foreign language section to a regular course. This event explores ways to expand FLAC offerings at Cornell by identifying the goals and necessary supporting structures, and by encouraging faculty across campus to add a FLAC component to their courses. What are the goals, roles, and responsibilities? What are the benefits and resource requirements? This event of panels and group interchange promises an engaging discussion by bringing together faculty, outside experts, TAs, language teachers, students, and senior administrators. Laura Brown, Vice-Provost of Undergraduate Education, will moderate the final discussion.

Your attendance will show the importance of support for FLAC, in terms of TA stipends and organizational structures. For more information contact Dick Feldman at rf10@cornell.edu.

Organized by Language Research Center and with support of Cornell's Language Education Council, Vice Provost for International Affairs, and the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies.
