The UCLA Center for World Languages, host of the National Heritage Language Resource Center, will offer a four-week teacher workshop on strategies for developing materials for heritage language learners (HLLs). Following a flipped format, the workshop will consist of three weeks of online training with an instructor’s feedback and monitoring, and one week of on-site instruction at UCLA, for a total of 75 instructional hours. We will accept 20 participants from across the country representing K-16 institutions. . Participants will demonstrate an ability to apply principles of materials development by designing a Standards-based project that is appropriate for HLLs with differing proficiency levels and needs. We are investigating the possibility of awarding Mozilla badges to participants.
