Teaching Idea Roundtable
Thursday, October 15
12:00–1:00 p.m. (Central Time)
This CARLA roundtable will feature University of Minnesota language instructors who received a scholarship to participate in a 2020 CARLA Summer Institute. They will each share information about the project they developed during their institute in a “swap shop” format.
The session will begin with a short introduction by Kate Paesani, CARLA Director. Each presenter will give a short, informal 3-5 minute presentation and answer questions in separate Zoom breakout sessions. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear up to three different presentations by moving to different breakout rooms at designated times. These sharing sessions will run from: 12:10–12:20 p.m.; 12:20–12:30 p.m.; 12:30–12:40 p.m. Participants will be invited back to the main room for a final wrap-up with Kate Paesani.
