Exploring the Crossroads of the Americas: Real-World Connections in an Expanded Curriculum

This workshop targets instructors of all levels looking to connect student learning to real world language needs by expanding their teaching content into Spanish for business/leadership (known as Spanish for Specific Purposes)  at the course or lesson level.  The workshop will include a country briefing at the American Chamber of Commerce of Panama and a site visit to DELL Panama.  Prior to the workshop, participants will receive materials through a WIKI to begin thinking about big picture questions tied to the global economy and desirable workplace skills.
