The focus of this institute is on the growth and development of the language learners produce, and how that growth may be enhanced by ongoing pedagogical innovation. This institute (described by past participants as "a veritable spa for language teachers") uses the problem-solving framework of Exploratory Practice to promote a culture of instructor initiative that promotes and responds to learner language development in the classroom.

The focus of this institute is on the growth and development of the language learners produce, and how that growth may be enhanced by ongoing pedagogical innovation. This institute (described by past participants as "a veritable spa for language teachers") uses the problem-solving framework of Exploratory Practice to promote a culture of instructor initiative that promotes and responds to learner language development in the classroom.

Participants begin with a brief review of theories of second language acquisition, and then work together to reflect on videos of learner language as it is produced by different kinds of learners. Institute participants work with instructors to identify specific features in these learners' language. Participants then apply those insights to their own classrooms by learning how to set up engaging, puzzle-solving activities that stimulate growth in learner language. Finally, participants learn how to design pre- and post-course measures that demonstrate the impact of their innovations in instruction on the growth of specific features and dimensions of learner language in their own classrooms.
