The hands-on activity sessions enable participants to incorporate technology into their standanards-based instructional material design, in order to maximize student learning. By the end of the two weeks residential program, our participants gain a better grasp of the national standards for foreign language learning, and an improved knowledge of current pedagogical and methodological approaches in teaching a foreign language, and effective methods to teach Persian language, using authentic print and multi-media material.
