The Manager is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the Center and therefore must have the professional and personal skills necessary to train and to supervise the student staff as well as work with the faculty of the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures in order to facilitate both student and faculty use of the Language Learning Center. In this context, the Manager assists faculty in implementing courseware, streaming video, and other support technologies while making sure that the existing technology in the Center is in good working order. The manager administers the budget and oversees an on-going planning process which facilitates the timely maintenance, repair, replacement, and upgrading of equipment so that the LLC stays abreast of changes in technology. The Manager actively keeps current with changes in technology and pedagogy, and assists the Department in doing so both through professional development and actively seeking grant support to keep the Center up to current standards as well as to keep it developing into the future for the best uses of Loyola University language and literature students. In order to accurately assess the developing relationship between the Center and the classroom, the Manager will teach two introductory or intermediate Spanish language courses per academic year.
