Mellon LCTL Collaborative Partners


With the support of a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the University of Chicago will bring together pairs of instructors of Less Commonly Taught Languages (LCTLs) from different institutions to develop shared course sequences in the target language.  The sequences will be articulated between the two instructors so that students will be able to achieve greater proficiency gains than would be possible for a single instructor teaching on a single campus.  The grant will run from July, 2016, until June, 2021, with new collaborative pairs added each year.
