Developing Materials
For Language Teaching

July 25–29, 2016

Target Audience
: Elementary to postsecondary foreign language, heritage, indigenous, and ESL teachers; of special interest to LCTL teachers. It is not intended for immersion teachers.

Language instructors often find it desirable to produce their own teaching materials. Even where commercially produced materials are widely available, teacher-made materials can respond to current events and local context, and can be aligned much more effectively with 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.
