The Global Learning Lab (GLL) is located in the Walter Commons for Global Study and Engagement on the first floor of Blaustein Humanities Center. The GLL supports language and cultural learning through its materials collection (textbooks, films, games, software) and its programming (events, tutoring, film screenings).
The GLL and the Academic Resource Center work together to offer weekly drop-in group study/tutoring for language learners on Sunday evenings in the Walter Commons. The GLL is "home base" for the Language Fellows, a student group that promotes language practice and cultural learning through its extracurricular events and activities for the campus community. It is also the home of the Structured Independent Language Study (SILS) program, which leverages the online language learning platform Mango, as well as local expertise, to offer students the chance to study languages not taught as part of the formal curriculum.
The GLL offers a quiet study lounge with four open access computers and a teaching space that has been designed for web conferencing sessions and public presentations. It also serves as a meeting space for groups connecting virtually with off-campus partners. To request use of the space, to discuss language learning resources and supports, or to plan a virtual meeting with off-campus partners, stop by the GLL to talk to Laura Little.
