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

COTSEAL and SEALC invite Southeast Asian language instructors from any US university or community college to apply to participate in the Heritage Language (HL) and Project-Based Learning (PBL) 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 workshop will then build procedural knowledge – i.e., how to instantiate this approach in the classroom. Participants will learn how to select project topics and materials, how to structure the creation of products for students at different levels of proficiency, and how to assess learning.

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

To renew COTSEAL membership or become a member, please fill out this form: http://cotseal.net/COTSEAL_membership_form.pdf.
