Links to External Resources
Here is a list of resources outside of the University dealing with language learning, assessment, and educational technology.
Boston Area Languages Consortium (BALC) – Assistant Dean and Director of Language Instruction Gisela Hoecherl-Alden has worked with the CAS Administration to strengthen ties among research universities in the Boston area. Benefits for students include arrangements in the future to enroll in less commonly taught languages (LCTLs) at any of the institutions where such languages are offered. In 2014-16 a seed grant through the Digital Learning Initiative (DLI) at Boston University helped pave the way for more courses to be offered either online or in a hybrid format, making it easier for students on all campuses to expand their language learning options.
