Drake University is pleased to announce the Call for Proposals for the CLAC 2016 Conference Developing Responsible Global Citizenship Through CLAC. (Click here for more detailed information regarding the Call for Proposals). This 10th Conference explores strategies for infusing foreign languages, intercultural perspectives, and a global vision throughout the curriculum. Educational institutions often embrace “global citizenship” and “international engagement” in their mission statements, but definitions and practical strategies are not always agreed upon or made explicit. Moreover, the role of language study and use is often entirely absent from the conversation or mentioned as an essentially meaningless requirement with no strategy for integration with the rest of the curriculum.

In 2002, Drake University drew national attention for creating a unique and experimental environment for language acquisition.  As a site of innovation in practice and delivery, Drake University offers an appropriate venue for a lively discussion and debate about the future of languages in the curriculum, methods for promoting meaningful language use beyond the language classroom, and CLAC’s role in developing engaged and globally-minded citizens. 

We invite proposals for papers (30 min presentation, including 10 min Q&A) or panels (90 min total, including 30 min Q&A) or poster presentations on any issue relating to CLAC.

Keynotes include:
Richard Kiely, Director of Engaged Learning + Research at Cornell University.
Dawn Michele Whitehead
, Senior Director for Global Learning and Curricular Change in the Office of Integrative Liberal Learning and the Global Commons at AAC&
