Language Diversity and Teaching Community

The CTL has partnered with Boise State’s English Language Support Programs to offer an extended experience to help faculty be prepared for and take advantage of our increasingly cross-cultural and multi-lingual classrooms.

The Language Diversity and Teaching Faculty Learning Community (FLC) will be a group of up to 8 faculty members from across the disciplines who will meet biweekly (7-8 sessions) to explore topics related to teaching and working with multilingual students. This FLC will not be running in Fall 2018.


Participants will:

  • Explore and discuss common texts.
  • Share ideas about teaching with an interdisciplinary group of faculty.
  • Learn new strategies for supporting students from diverse language and cultural backgrounds.
  • Develop a sense of community.
  • Earn $500 in professional expenses upon completion of the FLC projects.
