Topic:

The Anderson Language & Technology Center (ALTEC) at CU Boulder offers non-credit online review courses in French, German and Spanish year round. These courses, taught by experienced instructors, are an excellent way for intermediate students to brush up on their language skills. In this webinar, I will discuss the challenges and affordances of designing and offering these online review courses. I will address design principles (social media and 100% authentic resources), recruiting students, keeping students motivated in a non-credit course, keeping the content updated, and training teachers to teach online.
