Photos from events in GH 308 last week 


Dear Faculty, Lecturers and TAs,

LCLC was proud to host the First-at-LAS Spring event last week. Led by Rosilie Hernández, Associate Dean for Student Academic Affairs, the event was well-attended by students and a success all around. Find out more about the First-at-LAS program here.

Mardi Gras is coming up, and the French Club is celebrating, February 25th from 3:00-4:00 in Grant Hall 308. Mark your calendars and be ready to Laissez les bons temps rouler! 
Lots of LCLC events take place between now and then, of course: how about Wednesdays, when you can participate in Korean, German, and Italian Conversation Hours? Full schedule here.

Are you learning a new language now at UIC, or do you come from a multilingual background? If so, we invite you to share your stories with us and to read about the wide variety of language stories that your colleagues here at UIC have to share! You can read what other UIC undergrads, grad students, alumni, and faculty have written or submit your own story to us here.

All LCSL instructors are invited to attend the next LCSL 505 session, two weeks from now from 3:00-4:45pm on Friday, 14th February in GH 304. For this meeting, we will be talking about creating a blended course, so bring your thoughts, your questions, and your eagerness to learn.

Finally, we welcome all faculty, lecturers, and TAs to attend this week's workshop on Google Apps at UIC on Wednesday & Thursday afternoons and learn what the suite has to offer. If you can't make it at those times or have any other inquiries for us at all, send us an email at lclc@uic.edu or stop by GH 301 in person whenever the office is open (every weekday from 9-5).


UIC LCLC social media! Encourage your students and colleagues to check out the UIC Language and Culture Learning Center Facebook page and Instagram and Twitter feeds. Stay up-to-date with LCLC happenings. Promoting our pages is a good way to ensure your students know about your conversation hour or film series.

Weekly Workshop: Google Apps at UIC
We use Gmail (almost) every day to communicate. How often do you use Google Drive, Docs, Slides, Sheets, Forms, or Hangouts? All of these Google apps are cloud-based tools that can help us connect as well as teach:  present materials, collaborate in real-time, and organize information; edit, give feedback, and more. Whether you are already an expert in using Google Slides to present information or Google Forms to make quizzes, or you have never attempted to use Google Apps for instruction, stop by one of our workshops this week to share ideas or learn basics of these and other Google apps.

 


Can't make the scheduled workshop times? Email us to set up a meeting at the LCLC or in your office: lclc@uic.edu
