Using Smart Technology to Increase Course Offerings in World Languages

November 5, 2012 § 2 Comments

This morning I was part of a panel at the Council of Independent Colleges Institute for Chief Academic Officers along with Allen Henderson, Provost and Senior Vice President, Texas Wesleyan University and Charlie McCormick, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Schreiner University.  We were talking about the Texas Language Consortium.  Here’s the session description and the slides are below:

Low enrollment in world language courses can prevent a college from offering a breadth of languages and depth in any single language. To help overcome this challenge, five independent colleges in Texas are using high-definition videoconferences, thereby hoping to preserve the “high touch” element that is a hallmark of education in a liberal arts college. These institutions are working with the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE) to explore important research and implementation issues across academic, logistical, technological, financial, and curricular dimensions. CAOs from two of the participating campuses will describe their responses to these issues and how shared programming has surmounted many obstacles to maintaining strong world language departments.
