This workshop focuses on language, literature and culture courses taught in languages other than English.

Faculty from a variety of language and literature programs will present tips on Blackboard Collaborate (breakout groups, tests, and VoiceThread); using social media effectively; and Powerpoint with voiceover. The session will be held on Blackboard Collaborate, but the discussion will include strategies relevant to all platforms.
