Teacher workshop

This STARTALK program is for teachers of critical languages (Arabic, Chinese, Dari, Hindi, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Swahili, Turkish, Urdu) who want to teach their language online. Offered completely online, this 6-week, intensive course will give teacher participants the experience of taking an online course. Course content will focus on many different facets of a successful online language course, such as creating community, time management strategies, choosing appropriate technology tools for communicative-based activities, and developing a variety of online activity types. In addition to exploring these aspects of teaching online, participants will see these concepts in action in a model online language course. By the end of the course, participants will have created a portfolio of activities to be used in an online course. Teachers will be awarded a certificate of completion upon timely successful completion of course requirements (optional graduate credit available). Applications are due April 28, 2014. Please see the website for further information and application requirement
