NEW Graduate Student Working Group for Foreign Language Research and Teaching (FLRT)

September 14, 2017

In spring 2017, five graduate students from different language departments at OSU founded the Graduate Student Working Group for Foreign Language Research and Teaching (FLRT). Their goal is to foster collaboration between graduate students in the language departments who are interested in SLA and FL Research and Teaching. They will create options for professional enhancement such as reading circles, presentations, discussions, and workshops and discuss trends and issues in Foreign Language Research and Teaching.

The working group is officially registered as student organization with OSU Student Activities.

Interested graduate students are invited to join FLRT as a regular member. All members will be invited to discussion seminars, workshops, presentations, symposiums, and administrative meetings and will gain the right to run and vote for offices. Discussion seminars, presentations, and symposiums are also open to non-FLRT-members.

Events for Fall 2017 will be on Mondays 4 – 5:30 pm
