Fundamentals of Online Language Teaching is a fully online course designed for experienced classroom instructors who want to shore up their skills for teaching languages online.
The online nature of this six-week course exposes participants to all of the affordances and constraints of an online environment for language teaching and learning, allowing them to experience a student’s perspective firsthand. This includes engaging in a variety of tasks and discussions, which are meant to be a non-comprehensive sampling of the possibilities of online learning. Participants will receive feedback from the instructor and, by the end of the course, will have developed a principled plan for developing an online course at their own institution.
