Association of Departments of Foreign Languages Summer Seminars
The Association of Department of Foreign Languages is proud to announce their Summer Seminars! Draft programs for the seminars are posted on the ADFL website (www.adfl.org).
Each June the ADFL arranges two seminars where experienced and newly appointed chairs of ADFL-member departments or their designees share information and consult about issues facing their departments and the field. Lectures and discussions range in focus from the teaching and learning of language and literature in the broad context of the humanities and the changing university to the concrete challenges of department leadership and management. Seminar North this year will be held jointly with the Association of Departments of English.
Each seminar is preceded by current workshops:
-A workshop for new chairs, led by seasoned administrators, offers practical advice about all aspects of chairing to participants about to start or just completing their first year as department chairs
-A workshop for department re viewers and chairs of departments preparing for review examines materials, standards, and practices suitable to department reviews
-A workshop on teaching language through literature and literature through language offers instructional strategies that join the study of literature and cultural content with supported language development (only at Seminar South)
-A workshop on strategies for interacting the press (only at Seminar North)
More information (including dates, locations, accommodations, and more) are found on the ADFL website.
