Since 1989, the Department of German at the University of Virginia has cooperated with the Center for the Liberal Arts to offer programs for the professional development of teachers of German in the Commonwealth. The German Project aims to enhance language skills through the study of culture. Our intensive summer institutes are designed to provide opportunities for teachers to speak German, exchange information and teaching strategies, preview new German texts, and discuss topics of interest with visiting experts.
