Biography

Margaret Gonglewski came to GW to direct the German language program in 1995, after completing her Ph.D. in German at Georgetown University. Her scholarly work focuses on foreign language pedagogy, and she is co-author of Treffpunkt Deutsch, one of the top introductory level German textbook programs in North America. She has published articles on topics such as effective uses of technology in language teaching and learning, critical issues in materials selection, and the paradigm shift from language labs to language centers. From 2004 to 2008, Gonglewski served as the first Director of the GW Language Center, initiating innovative programming, as well as support and recognition for GW’s language faculty. She has been awarded several grants for developing materials to assist faculty in teaching business languages, and she is currently Business Languages Coordinator for GW’s Center for Business Education and Research, funded by a grant for the U.S. Department of Education.
