The NFLRC 2015 Intensive Summer Institute is not a beginner's workshop. In order to join, applicants first earned a digital badge from the Fundamentals of Project-Based Language Learning Online Institute as a prerequisite. All practicing world language educators K-16 were invited to apply but priority was given to participants currently working at U.S. community colleges and/or minority-serving institutions and teaching less-commonly taught languages.
July 27-31, 2015
Participants in this institute will work on project design for their own language classroom assisted by colleagues and guided by a group of language professionals with background in PBL, language pedagogy, instructional technology and assessment. Selected model projects designed collaboratively by institute participants will become part of an open project repository. See People for a full list of participants.
One of the main goals of this institute is to create language projects that can be shared and adapted for other language educators to use. Projects that demonstrate quality design in key aspects will become models or "prototypes" and will be made available through a project repository. Participants whose projects are selected to become part of the repository will be awarded a merit badge certifying their accomplishment.
We are grateful to the Buck Institute for Education for donating one of the books used by Institute participants.
