2021 STARTALK/NHLRC Virtual Teacher Workshop
June 21-25, 2021
Deadline: April 11, 2021
Apply Here

This workshop is designed to help language teachers face the challenge of teaching heritage language (HL) students. The workshop will open on June 1, 2021, with asynchronous online assignments for three weeks. This will be followed by a five-day, virtual workshop (June 21-25, 2021) that will be conducted via Zoom.

Accepted participants will be required to complete the online assignments as well as the virtual workshop.The online assignments will focus on identifying and addressing the linguistic gaps in HL students’ language, differentiated teaching, and teaching mixed classes. The virtual workshop will focus on how to use project based learning (PBL) as a useful tool in heritage language instruction.

PBL is a learner-centered approach in which students work over an extended period of time on a task that demands engaging with complex issues, analyzing topics, solving problems, or meeting particular real-life challenges. The workshop will be designed to impart the principles and methods of PBL and the ways in which language teaching and authentic materials can be incorporated into a PBL classroom. Participants will engage in hands-on activities that involve the development, presentation, and critique of projects that can be used with HL students.

There is no charge for this workshop, but there is an application process. Click on the link above to apply. For additional information, contact
