These courses were developed through a grant from the International Research and Studies Program of the U.S. Department of Education (co-PIs, Sally Magnan and Antonia Schleicher).
The three courses are designed primarily for new instructors of LCTLs at the postsecondary level. They are also useful for experienced instructors. Based on the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning, these courses can also be profitably used by college-level instructors of commonly taught languages.
Course Fees are: $100.00 for NCOLCTL Members and $150.00 for Non-NCOLCTL Members
You can enroll/purchase the Online Teaching Course here.
The courses are offered through the National Council of Less Commonly Taught Languages NCOLCTL) as non-credit professional development courses. The first course in the series, Fundamentals of Language Teaching Methods, is offered through the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
