Cultures & Languages Across the Curriculum
The University of Denver has an amazing resource in its undergraduate, graduate and faculty populations with abilities in more than one language. The Cultures & Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC) initiative at DU gives students and faculty the opportunity to integrate their language knowledge and abilities across the disciplines, opening the classroom up to differing cultural perspectives and access to knowledge that may otherwise be available.
CLAC can take many forms across a spectrum:
- individual assignments and discussions that require students to contribute materials and perspectives from other languages and cultures
- 1-credit discussion sections in other languages to add on to their classes. In these sections, students conduct research and discuss the class content in another language
- full content classes taught in other languages
Much of this work is already done at DU. The CWLC is working on this initiative to show the creative ways in which people across campus are integrating languages into their disciplines. Please contact us and let us know how you are using other languages and cultures to access and advance knowledge!
