Workshops

CLC workshops are a great opportunity for you to get involved, meet other instructors, and share teaching strategies.

At the Chicago Language Center, we encourage language instructors to expand their pedagogical techniques. We host frequent lectures for pedagogical training with hands-on workshops to provide training on useful technologies. We invite all language professors, lecturers, lectors, TAs, and drill instructors at University of Chicago to join us.
