Teaching in Tongues: Utilizing Technology in the Foreign Language Classroom
A Certificate-Based Program in Teaching Foreign Language, Literature, and Culture.
Did you ever wonder what the technology craze is all about? In this program you can learn how to make educated choices in the ever-growing field of instructional technology and at the same time earn a certificate that could give you the edge on the job market. Up to 1/3 of all jobs in foreign language departments ask for experience with the use of technology!
Here's the deal: Attend six approved workshops, develop a project of your own (either in pairs or individually), work on it in between meetings and earn a certificate testifying to your extra professional training in instructional technology. Four workshops will be offered by the Teaching Resource Center (TRC). The first three of those workshops are designed to get you started on a project. You then choose two workshops offered by the University (ITC, Library, ASCIT) to acquire the skills you need in a particular technology such as HTML, E-folio, Dreamweaver, Fireworks. Our last meeting gives you a chance to present your work in progress.
