Language Labs & Teaching, then and now: every picture tells a story


Our rotating headers are changing.

As a way to contrast “The Language Lab” of our past and language learning today, there will be new images popping in now and again in our header. These newer pics are from my classes and from our cubicle-free language center and other places as well. If you have one or two you would like to share, either old or new, please let us know!

And by the way, I just discovered Pixlr, an online image creation/cropping/adjusting tool. It is free ($$ contributions welcomed), and a Firefox add-on. It is amazing. I love the kaleidoscope filter. See above. Wheeeee….

Thanks once again go out to Ryan, who continues to open up late night/early morning e-mail messages from me, even when the subject line says something ominous like… “What would happen if…?”

Barbara is a Lecturer in Hispanic Studies at a small liberal arts college in Maine. Rumor has it this was also her alma mater. She used to work for a small liberal arts college in the cornfields of Ohio for almost 20 years as a teacher and language center director. Prior to these adventures in higher ed she taught high school Spanish and loved it. She wishes she had more time in her life to play with her dogs, write, read, swim, do yoga things and making stuff out of clay. To see her online portfolio please click here!
