More to celebrate—LCLC Language Peer Tutoring is serving lots of your French, German, and Italian BLP students. We look forward to working with Spanish BLP students in October. Our tutoring schedule and more information about peer tutoring is here: lclc.uic.edu/peer-tutoring
Syllabus envy? The thing where you talk to another teacher and think, wow, that website project looks amazing! LCLC staff can help you decide if a project will work in your class—contact us at email@example.com.
This week's workshop is on Basic photo editing—see more info in the LCLC Weekly Workshop box below to find out when to stop by GH 308 and what there is to learn!
Do you have a project in mind but aren’t sure how to make it work? Is there a technology that you’d like to learn more about or possibly use in your course? The LCLC is here to help! We have tech tools for every kind of project - in any kind of class from beginning language to advanced graduate - and can help you find the best way to integrate them effectively and meaningfully into your teaching. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with all your questions!
A teaching with technology tip of the week:
Print multiple pages per sheet in MS Word
Here is an easy way to print multiple smaller copies of a document on one sheet of paper:
1) Write your document in MS Word
2) Click "file", then "print" to bring up the usual print screen
3) For the last option in "settings", choose the number of pages you want for each sheet of paper
4) Important! For "pages", type in "1" as many times as the number you chose above (e.g. for 4 pages per sheet, type "1, 1, 1, 1" (see a screenshot here)
5) Choose how many copies of the sheet you want (e.g. 10 copies x 4 pages per sheet = 40 total)
6) Click "print", get your pages from the printer, and cut out your miniature documents!
UIC LCLC social media! Encourage your students and colleagues to check out the UIC Language and Culture Learning Center Facebook page and Instagram and Twitter feeds. Stay up-to-date with LCLC happenings. Promoting our pages is a good way to ensure your students know about your conversation hour or film series.
|LCLC Weekly Workshop: Basic photo editing
Week of September 16th
Weekly Workshop: Basic photo editing. While a powerful, multi-faceted program like Adobe Photoshop packs plenty of power and features, there is a lot that you can do with free photo-editing programs and even the programs that come pre-loaded on your computer. For everyday photo-editing needs, a little creativity and familiarity with the tools right in front of you can go a long way! Programs like Paint/Paint 3D as well as Microsoft Photos provide quick and simple ways to crop, re-size, change file type, and apply basic edits such as filters and light correction that help make your photos better-looking and easier to use and share. For more elaborate creative projects, the free online program Paint.net provides an intuitive and innovative user interface with support for layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools. Stop by GH 308 during the times listed above and learn more!

This Week's Featured Chicago-Area Cultural Event
Arina Dähnick, The MIES-Project (Photography exhibition) - Monday, September 16th (runs until October 11th)
With the legendary Leica M rangefinder camera - an unusual choice for architectural photography - Arina follows her photographic intuition, choosing viewing angle and distance, the different light at various times of day and year, adjusting aperture, exposure, and focusing manually. The photographer captures the soul of the architecture with her camera, designing interlocking image levels, initiating a multifaceted game with reality and perception, between the reality and imagination.
Location: Goethe Institut Chicago: 150 North Michigan Avenue Suite 200, Chicago, lL 60601
