The Language Resource Center (LRC) is a unit within LSA that supports faculty, staff, and students involved in the study of languages, literatures, and cultures at the University of Michigan. The LRC is located on the first floor of North Quad. Here, we maintain the Main Center with the media library and diverse resources for students, faculty, and staff, with spaces for group and independent study, computer workstations and computer classrooms (PC and Mac). The Main Center has lounge areas for students to meet and collaborate or to enjoy international movies. Several video conferencing units are available for check-out or for use in the LRC and North Quad for virtual exchanges, CIC/distance classes, or other class projects.
At the LRC, we support faculty in materials development, technology integration, and offer instructional support and consultation. For faculty interested in creating their own materials, two recording studios are available for voice and video production, and the Faculty Development Station (FDS) provides space and equipment for language instructors to do their own instructional project development.
The LRC regularly hosts, arranges, and sponsors events for faculty, staff, and students. These include a variety of group or individual workshops during the semester or in collaboration with the TTC for the annual Enriching Scholarship, the Language Teaching Forum (brown bags and lectures on language teaching), or events in collaboration with the wider North Quad community.
Our support team includes the director, Julie Evershed, administrators, a media librarian, instructional consultants, instructional technology, film and audio specialists, as well as a team of support students.
