Through an online component participants engage in reading, video-observations, group-projects, postings and forum discussions, while on site, they design activities in groups and individually, and team-teach beginning level students. The program is 70 hours delivered over four weeks – two weeks of online instruction, one week on site (8 full days Saturday-Saturday) and one more week online.
