Welcome to CLIC! I am Alessia Dalsant, professor of Spanish and Italian language and culture, and director of the Center for Languages and International Collaboration. I have been a college professor since 2005, and I taught in a number of different institutions in the US. I am interested in Second Language Acquisition and the use of technology such as VR and AR to enhance language learning. At CLIC, I am eager to create a multicultural environment where cross-cultural interactions can flourish so that students can develop cultural and linguistic competencies.
