NCOLCTL Online Teaching Courses Now Available

Fundamentals of Language Teaching Methods
The U.S. Educational System for Language Instructors
Teaching African Languages

These courses were developed through a grant from the International Research and Studies Program of the U.S. Department of Education (co-PIs, Sally Magnan and Antonia Schleicher).

The three courses are designed primarily for new instructors of LCTLs at the postsecondary level. They are also useful for experienced instructors. Based on the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning, these courses can also be profitably used by college-level instructors of commonly taught languages.

Course Fees are: $100.00 for NCOLCTL Members and $150.00 for Non-NCOLCTL Members

You can enroll/purchase the Online Teaching Course here.

The courses are offered through the National Council of Less Commonly Taught Languages NCOLCTL) as non-credit professional development courses. The first course in the series, Fundamentals of Language Teaching Methods, is offered through the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Contact regarding the non-credit offering of the course through NCOLCTL; contact Dianna Murphy for information on the for-credit offering through the UW-Madison.
