About the workshop

On February 9-11, 2017, the Univeristy of Chicago Language Center hosted its first Mellon Winter Workshop. This was a dynamic workshop showcasing reverse design and innovative pedagogy across languages and skills, with guest trainers from the University of Texas at Austin. Attendees left the workshop with a wealth of outcome-based course designs and assessments, as well as the means to create and sources to discover materials in writing systems, grammar and vocabulary, and reading and listening comprehension. The slides from each presentation are below, followed by a brief introduction to Open Educational Resources (OERs); the full agenda can be found here.
