The STARTALK Site Visit
The primary purpose of the site visit is to provide STARTALK programs formative feedback and recommendations for growth. Generally, a site visit team is composed of at least two site visitors, created to ensure linguistic and pedagogical expertise. The site visit team reviews program documentation, interviews program personnel and participants, and observes teaching and learning experiences the day of the site visit. Through this process, the site visit team:
- highlights program strengths
- identifies short-term and long-term areas for improvement
- provides formative feedback and strategies for continued improvement in alignment with the STARTALK-endorsed principles.
