Mark Your Calendar: April 20th Webinar on Creating Learner-Centered Environments

Nicole Mills, coordinator of the Beginning French language Program at Harvard, will be presenting a webinar hosted by the National Middle East Language Resource Center (NMELRC), and you’re invited! Dr. Mills will be discussing how to implement situated learning theory in the classroom. The webinar will include an overview of situationist and experiential learning theory, and will then demonstrate how to use a simulation exercise to create a learner-centered environment for language instruction. In simulations for Paris, France and Shiraz, Iran, the webinar will demonstrate how instructors can use social negotiation and collaboration as opportunities for active and authentic language use.
The webinar will take place on Friday, April 20th at 1 pm. Click here for more details and to RSVP.
