New Curricular Directions in College German Programs
2013 ACTFL/AATG Convention; November 22-24, 2013; Orlando, Florida
This session will explore ways to think creatively when faced with the issue of re-envisioning German programs at colleges and universities. Most of us either already had to restructure their curriculum or will be required to do so to address the budget shortfalls in higher education. The panel hopes to bring together up to four presenters who will discuss their unique and innovative curricular models for German programs at the college level. Questions that could be addressed in the presentations: Why did the changes take place? How long did it take to implement them? How did you measure success of the changes you implemented? How does your curriculum integrate study abroad, service learning, interdisciplinary considerations, student retention, community outreach, new technologies, etc? What would you suggest to colleagues interested in implementing a curriculum similar to yours?
