Talk by Angelika Kraemer, Director, Language Resource Center, Cornell University

Languages Across the Curriculum offers flexible models of instruction that gives students multiple opportunities to meaningfully use languages they know or are learning while integrating language into disciplinary areas. The focus of LAC classes is not language itself but rather field-specific academic discourse, specialized vocabulary, and technical terms drawn from the parent class. This underscores the importance of language as a means to access, generate, and disseminate knowledge.

Free and open to the public.
