Instructional Technology Resources
Our departmental faculty incorporate many technological resources into the language learning experience here at Denison. We have three important electronic spaces that we use frequently - the Foresman Lounge, the Multimedia Language Learning Center and Higley 028. Our faculty choose to teach in e-classrooms that provide easy access to digital materials. Our faculty use BlackBoard to organize their courses so that students have easy and clear access to learning materials. We administer the BYU Placement tests to first-year students to help identify appropriate course placements for each individual. We also administer the STAMP Proficiency Assessments to graduating senior language majors. This provides them with an outside measure of their proficiency level, which they can then share with propective employers.
We use the Brigham Young University language placement tests for French, German and Spanish.
We are members of the Five Colleges of Ohio, Ohio Learning Network and OhioLink. We also have worked with NITLE. We have contributed materials to group projects that these organizations have spearheaded and have participated in events sponsored by these groups. Our Japanese professor Michael Tangeman has contributed to The REALIA Project.
