With a focus on pedagogy and community building in interactive two-way videoconference-based distance learning courses, learn how the University of Wisconsin System has diversified language departments and grown language programs where they didn’t before exist through the creation of the UW Collaborative Language Program (CLP). This session will highlight the work that has been accomplished over the past 17 years of a successful language consortium. Participants will learn how our methods have evolved with the technology available to support teaching and learning. Participants will be able to identify logistical and pedagogical approaches that can be taken to ensure program stability, work around timing and scheduling differences, and guarantee that all learners are successful regardless of physical distance from the instructor. Examples will be given from Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, and Russian courses. Reference will be made to variations in approach that may be affected by class size and course content (upper level commonly taught vs LCTL courses) as well as what is on the horizon for the UW CLP.
