MELT Course

MELT is an intensive professional development course designed for international leaders who are serving or will serve as language training program managers in their countries. It is a seminar consisting of readings, discussions, and presentations by subject matter experts related to leadership, security cooperation, and academic program management. MELT is also a workshop where participants explore and apply course content to develop a capstone project intended to inform their organization’s continuous improvement program. Participants engage with DLIELC leaders in key positions and are challenged to think analytically about their language program, using industry best practices and DLIELC as an organizational model. This course enhances participants’ abilities with practical knowledge and competencies required to administer, supervise, and lead an MLTP.
