Working Advocacy in Your Language Program: Examples and Possibilities
On November 3, Vista Higher Learning presented the webinar Working Advocacy in Your Language Program: Examples and Possibilities by Dr. Dennis Looney.
To what extent do you think about language advocacy when you enter the classroom? This was one of the questions Dr. Looney addressed in the webinar, which also asked other questions to help discover if your curriculum is designed to appeal to today’s and tomorrow’s learners.
Dr. Looney also explored the role that advocacy plays in making the language professional’s work as dynamic as possible.
From the course to the program to the department, and to the profession itself, how can we make advocacy a pillar of our vocation? How can we include advocacy in our definition of success for our students and for ourselves as teachers?

Dr. Potowski shared ideas and suggestions to help build and strengthen native Spanish language programs.
This webinar addressed topics such as why it is important to offer a strong heritage speaker program with high-quality courses.
