During the NFLRC 2018 Intensive Summer Institute held in Hawai‘i, in-service K–16 world language educators will learn how to orchestrate rich, experiential language learning opportunities that help learners build a core of linguistic assets and the ability to interact in a contextually and socially appropriate manner. Each participant will design a well-scaffolded project for implementation in their own language class. A team of experts in PBLL, language technology, pedagogy, pragmatics, task-based language teaching, and assessment will help you craft compelling learning experiences for your students.

Note:  This is not a beginner’s workshop. Applicants must first earn a digital badge from the 2018 Fundamentals of PBLL Online Institute as a prerequisite.  Seats are limited and applications are competitive. Community college instructors and teachers of less commonly taught languages will receive special consideration.

 Seats are limited and applications will be competitive.
