Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program

From the LCTL-T listserv:

Dear Colleagues,

We hope you have had a smooth start to the academic year at your institutions. The Fulbright FLTA Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and administered by the Institute of International Education, is interested in hearing about your foreign language teaching assistant goals for AY 2013-14.

Prior to completing a host institution application for the program, we are requesting institutions complete a quick survey so IIE can gather statistics for the next academic year. With this data, IIE can better communicate with you and program partners abroad about potential placements. Please complete a survey at https://www.iiefeedback.org/se.ashx?s=6125022500C8F187 by November 2, 2012.

If you are unfamiliar with the Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) Program, the program enables young educators to refine their teaching skills, increase their English language proficiency and extend their knowledge of the cultures and customs of the United States. FLTAs engage in non-degree studies at accredited post-secondary U.S. educational institutions while assisting in language departments. FLTAs teach language courses, supervise language labs, lead language table discussion; act as resource persons in conversation groups, cultural representatives and much more.
