Developing and Sustaining Latin American Studies Programs

2018 Teaching and Learning Workshop

Saturday, April 21, 2018
Alverno College
Milwaukee, Wisconsin

We are excited to offer a very special NCCLA Teaching and Learning Workshop this spring. If you are thinking about developing a Latin American Studies Program, or already have one in place, this workshop will provide you with the opportunity to talk to other Latin American Studies faculty about their challenges and successes. We will talk about pedagogical topics such as the role of language in the program, Latin America vs. Spain, inclusion of U.S. Latino/a Studies, the role of marketable skills, and practical topics like the role of the director of the Program, and any other issues of interest to the participants.

The workshop is intended to build on the inter-disciplinary nature of the NCCLA, bringing together regional scholars to talk about a particular topic or pedagogical tool in an informal, roundtable format. This is NOT a conference where presenters are expected to share a paper.

Latin Americanist faculty from all disciplines are invited to participate. The workshop is offered in collaboration with the Consortium of Latin American Studies Programs (CLASP), a national organization supporting teaching, outreach and program development.

The workshop is hosted by Alverno College, with support from the UW-Milwaukee Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS), a Title VI National Resource Center, funded by the U.S. Department of Education. Registration fee (including Friday dinner and Saturday lunch): $30 (NCCLA members, CLACS members or RFAs) / $45 (non-member fee includes 1-year NCCLA membership); one-night lodging provided by CLACS for the first 10 participants.

Registration Deadline: April 7, 2018
