THE CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF LANGUAGES
CALL FOR CONSORTIUM GRANT PROPOSALS for Winter Projects — CAMPUS COMPETITION
PROPOSALS DUE Friday, January 14, 2011
The Autumn/Winter deadline for Consortium for Language Teaching and Learning grant proposals is Friday, January 14, 2011. Proposals submitted at this time will compete at the campus level. Application forms and guidelines can be downloaded from the Center for the Study of Languages web site ( http://languages.uchicago.edu/about/services.htm — Services & Policies>Services for Teachers>Grants and Funding). Please submit completed proposals as MS Word email attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org (Michael Berger); proposals will be reviewed by the Consortium Committee in early February, 2011.
The proposed project must pertain to the teaching or the learning of language. We are urging those of you involved with language teaching to consider in particular a project that might explore new ways of making use of already existing technologies and materials, such as commercially available audio and video files or computer programs. We also encourage you to formulate projects that are aimed at developing teaching skills–your own and your colleagues–using the hardware presently in use at the University, in the Center for the Study of Languages, and in the various multimedia-equipped classrooms around campus.
