Professional Development Webinars

The American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese 
and co-sponsors work together to provide AATSP members with professional development opportunities.


During the academic year AATSP and co-sponsors offer webinars on current topics of interest to instructors of Spanish. These webinars help instructors create new curricular offerings, utilize new instructional strategies, and design new assessments. In addition, the webinars present up-to-date information on standards, education policies, and international trends as they relate to the teaching of Spanish.


The AATSP is currently working with several partners to offer new professional development webinars in 2019 and beyond.



Upcoming Webinars:


Dual Immersion and Its Importance for Social Justice
October 17th, 2019 with Kim Potowski


In the United States there are models of primary education known as dual immersion that teach in Spanish between 50% and 90% of the day. First we will look at the results of some research demonstrating that students in these programs reach higher levels of English, academic performance and Spanish than their classmates who study only in English. Then we will consider the current and potential implications of dual immersion to promote social justice, an important issue for every student but even more forceful for the most vulnerable children and families in the country.

Teaching for the Long Term Memory: Have you ever heard “I studied Spanish for 2 years and I don’t remember anything!”?

January 27, 2020 with Krista Chambless

In this session we will explore concrete methods to address the underlying issues surrounding lack of lasting knowledge retention. We will address strategies to move learning from short-term to long-term memory. Presenters will share results observed in their classrooms when using such strategies. Teaching so that students will remember is possible.
