Pedagogy Workshop

“Designing Listening Comprehension Activities and Assessments for Content Classes in a Second Language”, presented by Annie Wendel and Jonathan Baillehache:

This workshop will present a set of activities and assessments that you can use at the 3000/4000 level or in any content-oriented language class in order to better your students listening comprehension skills while focusing on your content-specific course of study. You will be given opportunity to apply the methodology presented in small groups using sample material provided in our four languages. Bring your laptop.
