STF proposal German Studies: Surround Sound system

German Studies








The problem we are trying to solve is that our German students are struggling with the sound of movies in the language due the poor quality of the projector in the room in which we hold our movie nights. Students often have to rely on English-language captions which interferes with the learning goals for the event (i.e., improve listening comprehension and offer an immersive cultural experience). German Studies is applying to the STF’s call for proposals to buy a wireless surround sound system for our departmental library and event space, Denny Hall 359. DH 359 is also the space in which our undergraduates gather for their weekly sessions of the German Club RSO and where we hold our weekly film series. Installing a wireless surround sound system would take the experience of watching German movies to another level with the fantastic clarity the system delivers. We have a group of about 10-12 student learners who regularly come to the German film series every week. Our German Club RSO also uses the departmental library for games, conversation, and various projects including listening to German music and podcasts. Thanks to the outreach efforts of Humanities Advising Services, participation in German Club events has recently risen to around 50 students with room to grow once the word gets out that we have such a state-of-the art-system.
