Teaching Languages Online: Training and Mentorship

With the recent need to shift all courses to online learning, ILETC is launching a training and mentorship activity that offers the opportunity for instructors to redesign their Fall 2020 courses with the support of language educators who have been teaching online and training colleagues around the nation for years. What makes this training unique is the nature of the expertise of these instructors: They are experts not only in generic online teaching, but specifically in teaching languages online, a critical distinction because language instruction, as we know, is substantially different from instruction in other disciplines. 

The intensive blended training consists of six 90-minute sessions, plus required tasks between sessions (about two hours of homework for each meeting). The synchronous portion of the training will take place in June, on the following dates: 

Wednesday 06/17
Friday 06/19
Monday 06/22
Wednesday 06/24
Friday 06/26
Monday 06/29
  

Participants who complete all the training requirements by July 5th, 2020 will receive a certification.

The subsidized cost to CUNY participants is a non-refundable registration fee of $60 (actual cost is $150 per participant). 

There will be limited number of spots. 

To inquire about this activity, contact ILETC Director, Alberta Gatti at agatti@gc.cuny.edu
