In this session, the presenter will share how an 18-year-old language resource center at a small, private liberal arts university moved from a stand-alone location to become integrated within a language living-learning community (residence hall). The presentation will summarize the brief history of the center, address challenges in a stand-alone location, and share the opportunities presented in the new residential space. Ideas for events, collaborations, staffing, and other resources with be shared. At the end of the session, participants will be able to identify three ways to update a language “lab” space, define “post-language lab era” and “living learning communities", and describe 2 benefits of open-learning spaces.
