CARLA and the University of Minnesota have long been involved in supporting Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC) initiatives. CLAC engages languages and intercultural perspectives to achieve a better and more nuanced understanding of content. It focuses less on bringing disciplinary content or culture into the language classroom than on assimilating languages and cultures into instruction and research across a wide range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary contexts.
The Green German Project is a collection of open-access teaching materials and curricular resources related to sustainability and environmental topics. Developed for use by teachers, students, and curriculum designers, its intended audience is German language and culture courses at the intermediate–advanced level. CARLA supported the development of these materials.
This consortium of postsecondary institutions is dedicated to promoting the cultures and languages across the curriculum movement through conferencesand the sharing of resources. CARLA is an active member of the CLAC Consortium.
This online clearinghouse includes samples of CLAC syllabi, assessments, teaching materials, and program descriptions. The clearinghouse promotes sharing of successful CLAC materials and resources to a national audience.
This conference presented a wide variety of models and aspects of post-secondary programs implementing world languages and cultures across the curriculum. Hosted by CARLA in March 2012, the archived conference website includes videos, PPTs, and handouts from the conference.
Each summer CARLA offers a wide array of professional development opportunities for K-16 language teachers related to cultures and languages across the curriculum.
The CARLA bibliography has more information on presentations and publications done by faculty, students, and staff involved with this project.
