Paris Occup%E9
Friday November 6th from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Location: Hellems 145
Instructor: Dr. Terri Nelson
An instructor-created role-playing game (RPG) where students take on fictional identities was used to learn about Nazi-occupied Paris. The combination of historical information learned through more traditional course materials (fiction and nonfiction in a variety of media) plus the personal, emotional engagement with their RPG character, is helping students engage in higher level critical thinking skills and express more nuanced emotional, moral and philosophical stances in French while developing a more comprehensive and realistic understanding of this complex time period. This presentation will also discuss the game design features underlying the content delivery and linguistic scaffolding.

FLTP Workshop
Wednesday December 2nd from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM
Location: Hellems 152
Instructor: Alireza Mohammadrezabeig
Learning a new language is not about new vocabulary or grammar, it is about breaking the barrier to communicate with others, that's what we believe. We ,at Simor team, provide that opportunity for students at CU Boulder to be able to get in touch with their classmates, teacher and native speakers for practicing writing, listening, reading and speaking. We work closely with faculty members to update some of the best online tools on to provide students with a better learning environment. Meanwhile, we , as students know that existing tools such D2l discussion does not support us at all. Therefore, Simor is separate and very clear for breaking the barriers for communications.
