CARLA Summer Institutes 2014
Integrating Theory and Practice
The Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition (CARLA) at the University of Minnesota has offered a summer institute program for second language teachers since 1996. The institutes offered by CARLA reflect our commitment to connecting research with practice as well as our ongoing mission to share what we've learned with teachers and their second language learners. Linking research and theory with practical applications for the classroom, each institute includes discussion, theory-building, hands-on activities, and networking with colleagues.
Note: Many of the institutes are already full!
