Our five-week program “Bridging the Gap through Standards and Technology: STARTALK-2015 Program for Russian Teachers” provides unique professional training for a group of current and future teachers of Russian as a foreign language in the U.S. at K-12 and college level. Our first goal is to train teachers in methodology of teaching Russian as a foreign language, introduce them to a combined set of the U.S. and Russian standards of Russian language teaching and guide their work on learning objects that adhere to these standards. Our second goal is to provide technology training in the development of standards-based innovative computer-based learning objects. Our third goal is to educate our participants about distance learning contexts to keep Russian programs more competitive and to ensure their successful work in this new educational context that is often criticized as challenging for learning a foreign language. The program (120 instructional hours) starts with a four-week online module on June 22, 2015 and ends with a three-day on-site workshop and conference at the University of Iowa (July 20-22).
