About the course:

In spring 2020, teachers, instructors and faculty across the country had to abruptly transition their face-to-face courses online. However, designing a rigorous online or blended course is a time-consuming endeavor that requires much more than porting a face-to-face classroom to the web. Online learning calls for unique strategies that truly leverage the potential of technology.

The goal of this hands-on course is to prepare language teachers to tackle this task. This course is a good fit for teachers who wish to learn the best practices of online language education in order to design and teach their own online courses or to create online materials to supplement their face-to-face courses (hybrid/blended language learning). At the end of the course, you will have built a fully online unit that will serve as evidence of your newly acquired expertise in online language course design.


Course Format:

This 7-week fully online course is mostly asynchronous but not self-paced. There are weekly deadlines.  All course materials (readings, podcasts, etc) are provided within the course shell.


Certificate Credits:
