Event held by the University of Colorado Boulder Center for Asian Studies, 2/16/2021.
Original event description:
Join us to learn about Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC; see https://www.colorado.edu/cas/clac) from the Center for Asian Studies and CU faculty members who have taught classes utilizing CLAC techniques. CLAC provides opportunities for using materials in languages other than English and those developed in different cultural contexts to complement and enhance students’ learning in content classes.
This event will feature brief descriptions by the faculty participants and allow plenty of time for questions and further discussion about what CLAC has to offer, lessons learned, and how to get started.
