Location: AAC 162; Center Number: 781.891.2019
The Center for Languages and International Collaboration (CLIC) seeks to enhance course curricula in Modern Languages and International Studies through the use of state-of-the-art technology. Faculty members in both disciplines work in concert with the center to integrate course content and technology using synchronous and asynchronous technology.
Live video and computer conferencing, a multimedia library of instructional materials for language and cultural learning, and access to international satellite broadcasting are some of the technical resources available at the center that make authentic exposure to language, countries and cultures possible. The CLIC staff, composed of undergraduate Bentley students who speak two or more languages, also work with their peers throughout the semester and in doing so, continue to build the global perspective within the Bentley community.
