CLAC in Practice: Evolving Pedagogies for Teaching Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum

September 24-25, 2010

Skidmore College
Saratoga Springs, NY

The Fall 2010 conference on Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC) provides an opportunity for faculty, graduate instructors, and administrators to share expertise in building and managing post-secondary CLAC programs. The conference theme will address the practical issues related to developing successful pedagogical models for the CLAC classroom. Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum

The CLAC movement intends to make global competence a reality for students and to create alliances among educators to share practices and methods for incorporating an international dimension in curricula, and, more generally, to achieve internationalization goals. General principles of CLAC include: A focus on communication and content; An emphasis on developing meaningful content-focused language use outside traditional language classes; An approach to language use and cross-cultural skills as a means for the achievement of global intellectual synthesis, in which students learn to combine and interpret knowledge produced in other languages and in other cultures.
Within this large framework, CLAC can take many forms, depending on specific content and curricular goals within a discipline.
