Maximizing Student Performance during Intensive Arabic Study
A workshop and poster session for Arabic-language professionals sponsored by the National Middle East Language Resource Center. Advances in our understanding of brain plasticity (learning) and human motivation have far-reaching implications for:

1. designing and running intensive experiences that are more likely to result in significant learning, and
2. pre-program training and on-site coaching that will enable students to make the most of these and whatever experiences they will will need or happen to encounter as lifelong learners.
