Michigan State University Center for Language Education and Research (CLEAR)


CLEAR's mission is to promote the teaching and learning of foreign languages in the United States. Projects focus on materials development, professional development training, and foreign language research.

SUMMER WORKSHOPS

The Center for Language Education and Research (CLEAR) at Michigan State University is offering several low-cost summer professional development workshops in July. These workshops offer hands-on experience and concrete ideas for language teachers, and are appropriate for foreign language teachers as well as ESL teachers.

CLEAR has been offering workshops since 1997, and foreign language teachers from all over the country have come to East Lansing to attend them. The workshops offered this year cover a wide range of topics, appropriate as "refreshers" for experienced teachers or as reinforcement on topics in language teaching for newer and pre-service teachers.

Each workshop is three full days, and there are discounts for those attending multiple workshops.

Full descriptions, dates, pricing information, and workshop applications are available here.
