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 throughout the year.



Upcoming Webinars:

The Power of Advocacy for Language Professionals

March 19, 2020 with Martha Vásquez

You can make a difference! This webinar will look at the power of advocacy and how language professionals can impact their communities by bringing about small changes over time. Many never take the first step in advocacy because they do not know where to start. This session will explore how to get started in advocacy, what the common stumbling blocks are, and how to overcome them. Advocacy starts with small things that add up over time. Advocacy starts with you!


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

March 2, 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.
