DRAKE UNIVERSITY ANNOUNCES
Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC) 2016 Conference
Developing Responsible Global Citizenship Through CLAC
October 21-22, 2016
Des Moines, Iowa
Proposal Deadline EXTENDED:
Friday, June 17, 2016
Selected papers invited for a special published volume
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.

For a decade the SUNY COIL Center has been reimagining education as a globally networked phenomenon. Collaborative Online International Learning* links faculty across borders to co-create learning environments in which students gain valuable digital and cross-cultural competencies through collaboration with international peers. We have in parallel expanded the landscape of higher education institutions at SUNY, across the US and the world who are internationalizing their curricula by implementing the COIL model to benefit their students, as well as their faculty and staff.
Our own networks have grown from a handful of loosely participating campuses in 2006 to over 50 committed member institutions working to normalize this model. At this, our tenth anniversary conference, we gather together to reflect on the evolution of the field, to celebrate accomplishments, to welcome new practitioners to our networks, and to investigate what new directions the next ten years may bring.
*COIL is used to refer to pedagogical activities using technology to link classrooms and students in geographically distant locations through coursework. Other terms describing such activities are virtual exchange, virtual mobility, globally networked learning, telecollaboration, and online intercultural exchange.
