ELA Philosophy

The UW-Whitewater English Language Academy instructional philosophy is centered on our belief that language development and human development are intertwined. The UW-Whitewater ELA carries out its mission by implementing Knefelkamp's Developmental Instruction (DI) model. The DI model outlines four key variables on a continuum to challenge and support students: structure (framework/direction), diversity (alternatives/perspectives), experiential learning (concrete, direct learning experiences), and personalism (safe learning environments where risk-taking is encouraged).

ELA Mission

The mission of the UW-Whitewater English Language Academy is to support students in meeting their academic, professional and personal goals through meaningful opportunities to learn English as a second language inside and outside of the classroom.
