WLC has always been a department in which students come first. For example, while the concept of “flipped” classrooms has become more common in recent years across disciplines, we in WLC have always prided ourselves on smaller-sized, interactive classes and personalized guidance for our students. To further facilitate WLC’s student-centered learning experience, we have converted 3228 Pearson Hall from a faculty workroom into a student space called the Global Student Workspace. This new room will serve as a social space where our students can gather between classes, hold language club meetings, wait for advising appointments, and meet other students in the department. We invite all students to stop by and connect with other language majors and learn about the many opportunities available to them in our department and in the world beyond!
Stop by and check out the Global Student Workspace the next time you are in Pearson Hall or watch a slideshow of the room’s transformation below. Global Student Workspace will be open Monday-Thursday from 8am-8pm and Friday from 8am-5pm.
