CLAC Materials Clearinghouse

Language Center Director Dan Soneson and CHED graduate student Caleb Zilmer unveiled the CLAC Materials Clearinghouse at the conference of the Consortium for Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC) at Drake University on October 21, 2016. The Clearinghouse, hosted on the CARLA website, is a curated collection of materials used in CLAC programs around the country: carla.umn.edu/CLAC/Clearinghouse.html

The development of the CLAC Clearinghouse is a response to the growing number of calls for access to current CLAC-oriented syllabus materials. With support from CARLA's Language Resource Center grant, Dan Soneson has been working to establish and maintain an online collection of materials used in successful CLAC programs throughout the country. Through discussions at the CLAC conference in 2015 and an online survey of CLAC members, the scope of the initial project was broadened to include other supporting materials, such as training materials for instructors, specific activities for students, descriptions of CLAC programs and implemented models. In addition, to encourage a living presence, the newly established Clearinghouse provides a means of ongoing conversation, currently in a general online discussion forum.
