About the FLLRC… in normal times
The Foreign Language and Literatures Resource Center at Lafayette College is a full-service, multimedia facility whose mission is to foster a dialogue between cultures* through the appropriate use of educational technology. The FLLRC at Lafayette complements and supports the ten different modern and classical language, literatures, and culture programs offered at Lafayette. You will find more information about these offerings in the following video as well as highlights about each language listed under the Linguas tab in the menus bar.
The FLLRC offers a variety of resources; students and faculty have access to everything from international virtual reality programming to the latest in pedagogical software for the study of languages and cultures. Here, students learn how to build e-portfolios that showcase and help them reflect on their language learning journey. Native speakers and advanced learners of the various languages taught at Lafayette are on hand to help as language tutors, technology mentors, or simply share a conversation about an international news story over a cup of coffee in our Encounter Space. The FLLRC is also a venue on the campus cultural circuit, offering a number of changing art exhibits and programs.
The Center was initially created at Lafayette College in 1990. Thanks to several generous grants from alumni and the Mellon Foundation as well as a serious commitment by Lafayette to the study of foreign languages, the FLLRC has undergone several important upgrades in recent years. The resource center currently boasts two state-of-the-art computer rooms (Mac and PC), which are used for class assignments as well as self-directed and cooperative learning activities; it also includes technology-rich classrooms as well as several lounges and study spaces. The focus of the FLLRC is not only on providing technological resources, but also on ensuring that these resources are well-supported by our personnel and integrated into the overall language learning experience.
