GW-CIBER held a professional development seminar on “Innovations in Business Language Teaching” on Oct. 23 for language instructors from local universities and institutions.
One of GW-CIBER’s major objectives has been to develop, deliver and disseminate a novel business language program with a specific focus on critical languages that are not commonly taught, such as Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Japanese, Korean and Russian. To accomplish this objective, and to support the growing community of business language instructors across the United States, the center draws on partnerships of language and business school faculty and offers a variety of initiatives.
The seminar, organized as part of the GW-CIBER Business Language Network initiative, showcased some of the course materials developed by the GW business language faculty, introduced opportunities for support and professional development, and provided a platform for participants to share their experience and ideas. Thirty-five instructors from GW, other DC-area universities and the World Bank attended the half-day workshop.
