Professional Development Series:  Preparing Students for the Global Workplace…

Join us for a conversation with Dr. Annie Abbott  of the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign!   We will talk about what “Languages for Specific Purposes (LSP)” is and  how to integrate LSP concepts and activities into your classroom so students see the immediate relevance of language.

Join the session here:    http://ufat.adobeconnect.com/r9p6x7amj7f/ 

The goal of our online professional development series is to help educators help students  see the immediate relevance of language in the personal and professional aspects of their lives. Through these conversations, we  want to hear your thoughts and ideas on what future topics will be of interest to you and how the NOBLE project can support you and your efforts to prepare students for the 21st century global workplace.
