Organized in collaboration with UCLA Center for Southeast Asian Studies and UCLA National Heritage Language Resource Center.

COTSEAL invites Southeast Asian language instructors to apply to participate in the Project-Based Language Teaching Virtual Workshop hosted by UCLA on October 23-24, 2020.

This workshop will introduce the principles and practices of Project-based Learning to participants in order to strengthen the development of instructional materials that can be incorporated into the curricula of Southeast Asian language classes.

Prior to the workshop, participants will be required to complete an online module that will focus on identifying and addressing issues pertinent to HL students as well as impart the principles and tools of PBL, including exemplary models of this approach.

The virtual workshop will then train participants how to apply this approach in their language classrooms.

All participants must be active members of COTSEAL or become a member. (Dues are $30/one-year and $55/two-year.)
