AATG invites you to join colleagues for a three-day seminar for college/university German department faculty on October 10-12 at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. Due to the overwhelming interest in and success of last year's seminar, we are able to offer this professional development opportunity once again and have increased the number of participants to 28. The seminar will be facilitated by Dr. Heidi Byrnes and Dr. Marianna Ryshina-Pankova of Georgetown University.
This workshop will provide a unique professional development opportunity for faculty in post-secondary German programs to develop curricular frameworks and methodologies that enhance educational opportunities for their students, position the study of German at the forefront of innovative teaching, learning, and assessment practices, and enable them to contribute to the educational mission of their institutions.
Participants raved about last year's workshop. University of Utah professors Michael Gruenbaum and Joseph Metz reported on its impact on their curriculum. "We have developed a stronger understanding of the desirability of both offering additional types of courses in the German program and partnering with other units on campus to expand the scope of German. We will increase our efforts to actualize 'language across the curriculum.'"
Hotel accommodations will be provided and stipends of up to $500 to cover transportation costs and meals will be awarded to individual participants. Apply today on our website.
This seminar is made possible through funding from Netzwerk Deutsch of the Sonderprogramm zur Förderung von Deutsch in USA und Kanada sponsored by the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Washington, DC.
