Over the last decade, CALICO has offered online language teacher training. In this three-hour ‘flipped’ workshop, participants will work through what it takes to launch a fully online language program for first- or second-year language learners (novice to intermediate-low proficiency ACTFL scale, A1-B1 CEFR). Before the workshop, participants will receive a survey and links to a set of TED-Ed lessons on topics related to online language pedagogy. Then, based on surveyed needs and lesson choices, participants will engage in hands-on tasks that lead them through fundamental design thinking, development strategies and appropriate tools, and assessment and evaluation routines.
