When accepting a new position at a university, community college, or K-12 school, you may be asked to do more than teach a language. If you are an IALLT member or a person looking up information on the IALLT webpage – chances are that you are a language technology professional or a language instructor who has been tasked with designing or redesigning a Language Learning Center (LLC).
Designing or completely remodeling a LLC can be a daunting task. It is certainly a task that nobody should (have to) tackle alone. When first exploring the issue of (re)designing a center, it is crucial to determine your department’s or school’s needs for this new LLC. And, while exploring new technologies, it is also important to determine what kind of learning spaces you will need.
