New Paths to Old Problems: Innovative Cures for Atrophying Language Programs
Gabriele Dillmann, Denison University/GLCA
Language departments across the country struggle to keep their programs afloat during times of critical budget cuts that increasingly force our institutions’ administrations to reconsider the sustainability of programs with chronically under-enrolled upper levels and courses in less commonly taught languages. This session aims to bring together practitioners who have been reflecting upon and instituting alternative paths to preserve and/or expand our language offerings in innovative, viable ways.
Information on how to submit: http://pamla.org/2017/topic-areas
Please note that you need to be a PAMLA member by no later than July 15. They offer a combined membership and registration option, which is really quite reasonable.
Proposal Submission Deadline: MAY 21st, 2017. Proposal Submission Form.
