Project-Based Learning in the Language Classroom
Workshop leader: Dr. Senta Goertler
Workshop times: 9:00am-4:00pm each day

Are you bored with the same textbook activities? Are your students laughing at the outdated pictures in the book? You can spice it up or even replace the textbook with project-based learning. Students are engaged, learn teamwork, develop their computer and technology literacy, and develop their language skills while engaged in fun projects. Projects can be short-term or long-term, involve written and/or oral language production, be completed individually or in teams. In this workshop you will learn how to design good projects, how to structure project presentations, and how to evaluate the project and the language learning during project-based learning. The introduction to project-based learning will include many example projects (with assignment sheets, sample student work, and evaluation criteria). Most of the examples will be from a variety of levels in German language classes. Participants will also design their own project ideas and create a sample project for their students. Basic computer skills are a must for this course. Familiarity with RIAs, file sharing programs, and/or web publishing through wikis/blogs/web sites is a plus. To maximize the benefits of this workshop, participants are encouraged to also participate in the workshop entitled "Using Video to Promote Language Development in the Classroom,” which immediately follows this one.
