Free Six-Week Course for Spring Semester: Teaching a Hybrid Language Course

As language courses here at the university and across the country shift towards a blend of face-to-face and online instruction, many teachers find themselves in unfamiliar territory. They've worked for years developing strategies and techniques for the traditional classroom, but have little experience as either a student or an instructor in the online environment.

The CLA Language Center is pleased to announce a 6-week seminar on teaching a hybrid language course during Spring Semester 2013. The seminar will be offered in a hybrid format, with both online components and three face-to-face sessions from February 1 to March 14, 2013.

The face-to-face sessions held on Fridays, 11:15-12:05pm in Jones 35 on the following dates:
  • February 8
  • February 22
  • March 8

Topics to be addressed include:
  • Getting into the course (course preparation, introductions, syllabus)
  • Building Community (starting and maintaining discussions, fostering student peer support)
  • Blending the Course (integration of online activities into face-to-face content and activities)
  • Student Time Management and Coaching
  • Assessment and Feedback

Look for more information and registration forms in January!
