PD Peer Team

The Proficiency Assessment for Curricular Enhancement (PACE) Professional Development (PD) Peer Team is an important part of the PACE project because it puts language instructors in the driver's seat.

The team includes representatives of the seven PACE languages: French, German, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish as well as members of the PACE Admin Team. This team is tasked with building and sustaining energy around a culture of continual and collaborative professional development in the various language departments.

The PACE project aims to build a culture of data-informed exploratory practice among the language departments. This will be accomplished via assessment and professional development. Assessments will give instructors an independent indication of the proficiency level(s) of their students, while professional development opportunities (both large and small) will build the skills necessary to understand this data and ask questions about it.

For questions regarding Professional Development events and for inquiries about getting involved, contact Dr. Adolfo Carrillo Cabello at (612) 626-6046 or carri093@umn.edu.
