CLS Workshops

Every year, we offer professional development opportunities for K-16 teachers throughout Michigan at MSU. The immersion workshops take place on Saturdays. All-day workshops run from 9 am - 3 pm, half-day workshops run from 9 am - 12 pm. Workshops are generally held in Wells Hall.

The workshops focus on teaching methodology, cultural content, resources for teaching, practicing the target language, and networking. Topics have included music, teaching with technology, multicultural societies, communicative language teaching, implementing literature in the language classroom, teaching culture, and translation.

We are currently offering these workshops in French, German, and Spanish. More languages may be added upon request.

The registration fee includes coffee and snacks, materials, and an authentic lunch (for all-day workshops only).

Spring 2017 offerings will be posted in February.

Online registration opens on Monday, November 2, 2015 and closes on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. All programs are accessible for participants with special needs. CLS must be notified at least four weeks prior to a program start date in order to determine reasonable accommodations.
