STARTALK Online Course: Transitioning to Teaching Language Online


STARTALK: Transitioning to Teaching Language Online

July 8 - Aug 18, 2013

This new STARTALK program is for teachers of critical languages 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, developing a syllabus, time management strategies for teachers and students, 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 lesson for the start of an online course of their own. Teachers will be awarded a certificate of completion upon finishing course requirements.

Cost is free for those accepted to this online program.
Applications are due April 26, 2013.
