Davidson College, Davidson, NC
13-14 September 2002

This chapter meeting is made possible by the generous support of

Davidson College     and     Goethe Institut Atlanta   ATLANTA


Dear Colleagues:

If you are a teacher of German in the state of North Carolina, you are cordially invited to attend our next Lehrerkonferenz, "Applying Information Technology in the German Classroom." The event will take place September 13-14 at Davidson College and will be hosted by Burkhard Henke.

All AATG members and prospective members are welcome to attend. The conference provides an excellent opportunity to meet with a cross-section of colleagues from the state of North Carolina to discuss topics of mutual interest. For non-members, it is a chance to meet with fellow professionals and weigh the benefits of membership. Aside from business items and presentations, including one by Jürgen Weigmann of the Goethe Institut Atlanta, the agenda will feature a hands-on workshop on Saturday (see Schedule). During that time we will introduce you to internet technology and produce some sample web pages for the classroom.

Workshop Preparation

In order to get the most out of the workshop, we encourage you to bring digitized materials (text in Word or HTML format, images, audio, video), and to give some thought ahead of time to the web site you would like to create. If you want to upload your newly created web files to server space at your home institution, you will also need to bring the following information with you:

ftp host:
host directory:
Are FrontPage extensions loaded on the server?

Please ask your IT staff for help. If you do not have server space already, or cannot use ftp to upload and download files (ask your IT staff), or have no idea what "ftp" means, don't worry. We will provide temporary practice space on one of the Davidson servers for the duration of the workshop.



To register for the conference, please download the registration form (Word), and return the form along with a check made out to NCAATG to Burkhard Henke by August 23.
