    Summary

    The IU LCTL STARTALK Professional Development Program will prepare participants to develop lesson plans using Backward Curriculum Design with performance assessment in the three modes of communication. The program will also train participants to integrate language, culture and content in the language classroom through micro-teaching sessions and how to create a learner centered classroom. Twelve participants who are either new instructors or who have not had any formal training in language pedagogy will be selected to permit adequate opportunity for teaching demonstrations. The program will be a total of three-weeks, and 90 instructional hours, of which 10 hours will be devoted to on-line training and 80 hours will be spent at the residential face-to-face program in Bloomington, Indiana. These hours include some of the hours that the instructors will spend with the participants on an individual basis during the evening curriculum clinic session to attend to individual differences and challenges.
