Please Apply for this Exciting Opportunity

We are pleased to announce that the California Language Teachers Association (CLTA) and the California World Language Project are again co-sponsoring the Student Workshop at the Summer Seminar this coming summer. The 27th Annual Summer Seminar and Student Workshop will take place at the University of California, Santa Barbara from July 14-19, 2017 and will offer a program especially designed to introduce language majors and minors to World Language Education as a viable career option.

Centered on the theme of “Common Core and World Language Education: Enhancing Global Competence and Academic Performance,”  the Workshop will offer participants general sessions exploring a number of topics that support the identified theme.  The Student Workshop will focus on exploring teaching world languages in the context of teaching languages and cultures in our increasingly diverse society and global economy. This will involve examining teaching strategies and lesson design, and interacting with language professionals who will share their experiences, philosophies and knowledge with prospective language teachers.

CLTA and CWLP have collaborated in leveraging funding to cover the Seminar’s program costs, so registration, lodging and meals will be covered for all student participants (transportation not included).
