Every August, the CLS, with participation from a variety of language faculty and outside presenters, sponsors an intensive pedagogy workshop for graduate students at the beginning of their language teaching careers and for newly arriving language faculty. This multi-day workshop provides an introduction to language teaching at Yale. It tries to answer practical questions, such as how to design an in-class activity, what to accomplish the first week, and how to go about maintaining an engaged classroom. Other topics include mediating the use of multimedia materials in the classroom, recognizing common learner difficulties, accessing on-line course management tools and locating campus resources of all kinds. Contact Fernando Rubio or Mary Jo Lubrano with questions.
