The Center for Advanced Language Proficiency Education and Research offers several opportunities for professional development. Each year, CALPER conducts a series of workshops and conference-like events, some of which are held during the summer at Penn State's University Park campus, others during fall and spring in collaboration with partner universities and schools across the country.
Here are the planned 2013 summer workshops:
Discourse Analysis and L2 Teaching and Materials Development
The Interface of Language and Culture
Registration opens March 15. Learn more at http://calper.la.psu.edu/profdev.php?page=workshops
