Language Resource Center Spring Learning Community Application Deadline

Friday, January 31, 2020 at 5:00pm

Stimson Hall, G04
204 East Ave., Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

The inaugural Language Resource Center Learning Community (LC) will focus on Core Practices for Effective Language Learning. It is designed around one of ACTFL's Virtual Learning Modules. In monthly meetings, we will explore and deconstruct research-based strategies for effectively developing students’ language proficiency. The goal is to develop practical knowledge for designing real-world tasks for our classrooms and curricula. The LC will address questions such as: How much time should I spend in the target language? What kind of feedback is most effective? How can I use more authentic resources with my students?
