Developing Materials

for Language Teaching

July 27–31, 2015

Target Audience: Elementary to postsecondary foreign language, heritage, indigenous, and ESL teachers, and is especially useful for teachers of less commonly taught languages.

Language instructors often find it desirable to produce their own teaching materials. Even where commercially produced materials are widely available, teacher-produced materials can respond to current events and local context, and can be directed much more effectively toward the interests and needs of particular learners.

This hands-on workshop will explain how to prepare engaging, pedagogically effective teaching materials for the language classroom. Grounded in research on effective language learning and teaching, the institute emphasizes creative and interactive approaches to language teaching, and offers a broad range of strategies and techniques for exploiting authentic materials. In the second half of the institute, each participant will have ample time to develop innovative teaching materials for his or her own classroom.
