New Directions in Foreign Language Learning: Faculty Development at the University of South Carolina.
Cooke-Plagwitz, Jessamine
In order to encourage foreign-language faculty to increase their use of technology in the classroom, the University of South Carolina has created a new role for the Academic Director of its Foreign Language Learning Center. The director oversees a Faculty Development Center for faculty interested in incorporating technology into their curricula. The center provides an area where interested faculty can develop courseware, design and maintain World Wide Web pages, work with audio and video, and experiment with instructional technology (IT) in a non-threatening environment. In addition, the center offers a series of IT workshops geared specifically toward foreign-language faculty. This article outlines the nature of the center's faculty development efforts. A copy of the workshop evaluation questionnaire is included. (Author/MES)
