ESP Course Creation with Jennifer Rice

The world of software engineering is unfamiliar to most English language professionals, so when English Language Specialist Jennifer Rice was selected for a virtual teacher training project with the Jalasoft software company in Bolivia, she knew her background in the field of English for Specific Purposes (ESP) would be crucial. The project involved partnering with a team of three English trainers employed by Jalasoft to create a curriculum for and then teach an ESP course to pre-service computer software trainees at the company. Check it out here. (May 2022)

Let’s Talk is a service that provides easy access to free, informal, and confidential one-on-one consultation with a Counseling Services staff member. See our website for six additional Let’s Talk days/times offered throughout the week.

Let’s Talk is especially helpful for students who:


Have a specific concern and would like to consult with someone about it.
Would like on-the-spot consultation rather than ongoing counseling.
Would like to consult with a CS staff member about what actual therapy looks like.
Would like to meet with one of our CS identity-based specialists.
Have a concern about a friend or family member and would like some ideas about what to do.


How does Let’s Talk work?

Let’s Talk will be offered via Zoom and/or in satellite locations across campus. As a drop-in service, there is no need to schedule an appointment and no paperwork to be completed. Students are seen individually on a first-come, first-served basis at the times listed below. There may be a wait in the Zoom waiting room if the Let’s Talk staff member is meeting with another student. Please wait and we will be with you as soon as we can. Let’s Talk appointments are brief (usually between 15-30 minutes) and are meant to be used on an as-needed basis.
