    Summary

    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 revise or create their curricular maps and/or their thematic units in light of readings on the theory and practice of formative and summative assessment, specifically proficiency and performance. They will learn to use assessment data to articulate activities/tasks and ensure maximal learning. During the intervening year, participants will deliver their materials by framework-aligned and standards-based practices and refine their performance tasks, units and lessons to ensure optimal articulation and move learners to higher levels of proficiency.
    Technology Sessions will be offered for teachers at various levels of proficiency. Novices will design or adapt a learning episode and deliver a model episode for high school/university students. 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 university student volunteers.
    Intermediate level participants, will complete the tasks assigned to novices as well as the following tasks: a) edit authentic materials, b) create learning episodes/plans that include technology-based interpersonal activities that simulate real-world tasks; and c) technology-based presentational tasks that demonstrate culturally appropriate language use.
    Teachers in the Leadership and Technology Sessions will explore the use of platforms to facilitate professional development and language learning and participate in an online community to share materials and practices that will foster continued interaction among participants.
