Recognizing that study abroad experiences play an integral part in the development of second language acquisition, CLTA is delighted to announce the launch of the 2014 CLTA Study Abroad Site Visit Award. Initiated by the Associated Colleges in China (ACC), a study abroad program in China administered by Hamilton College, this newly established award supports site visits to study abroad programs in China and Taiwan. The primary goal of this award is to help teachers to gain insight into their students’ learning processes in the target setting, and encourage teachers to design effective instruction to advance students’ linguistic and cultural competencies beyond study abroad programs.
Application and eligibility information can be found on the CLTA Study Abroad Site Visit Award page. (Deadline: March 31, 2014)
