Occidental College offers two separate blended programs one focusing on the development of leadership and the second focusing on technology as the core of standards-based instruction.
Thirty applicants (teachers in elementary, middle, high school and university settings) will be served in these two programs for ninety-six hours. Sixteen hours in the Leadership Program and twenty-four hours in the Technology Program will be delivered online. The face-to-face segment will be three days for Leadership Program and four days for Technology Program. The Leadership program is by invitation. Participants in the leadership program will create curricular maps and/or a thematic using social justice/global issues as an organizing principle. During the intervening year, participants will pilot materials and modify them based on program needs and interactions with their students. Technology Sessions will be offered for teachers at various levels of proficiency. Technology Sessions will be offered for teachers at various levels of proficiency. Novices will design or adapt learning plan(s) and deliver a model leaning episode for volunteers (university students, LOTE student-teachers, graduate language instructors, and university staff). Specifically, they will a) specify the learning targets using can-do statements b) create a technology-based interpretive task with authentic materials using technology to make language, culture and/or content comprehensible to students, c) explore various programs that can be used to support interpersonal and presentational communication and d) participate in a practicum where they teach segments of a model lesson to volunteers. 4) Teachers in the Leadership and Technology Sessions will explore the use of platforms to facilitate professional development and language learning and create an online community to share materials and practices that foster continued interaction among participants.
