Talk on SLP at Crisis Management Conference at Hope College, 7 October 2017
GLCA/GLAA Consortium on Teaching and Learning in Ann Arbor on February 11, 2017.
Gabriele Dillmann, Professor of German at Denison University in Granville, Ohio, USA, and Diana Stantcheva, Professor of German at the American University of Bulgaria (AUBG) in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria, described a set of connected courses they have offered to their students over eight consecutive semesters. The idea for the project stemmed from the realization that collaborating can help students expand their proficiency in learning a second language. Gabriele had discovered early on, however, that seeking to link her introductory German class with German students was not effective, because German students had so much better command of English than her American students had of German. This led to the idea of working with a professor of another country whose students were also in formative stages of learning German. For Gabriele and Diana, this was an ideal pairing, because students in both of their classes approached the study of introductory German with the same basic proficiency. An extended description of this collaboration can be found under the “Article of the Week” tab.
