Registration Opens: Teaching a Hybrid Language Course

As language courses here at the University of Minnesota and across the country shift towards a blend of face-to-face and online instruction, most teachers find themselves in unfamiliar territory. They've worked for years developing strategies and techniques for the traditional classroom, but have little experience as either a student or an instructor in the online environment. The CLA Language Center is pleased to offer this semester a 6-week seminar on teaching a hybrid language course.

The seminar will be offered in a hybrid format, with both online components and 3 face-to-face sessions from Feb. 1st - March 14th. The face-to-face sessions will be on Fridays:
February 8th, February 22nd, and March 8th from 11:15 - 12:05 in Jones 35.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • Getting into the course (course preparation, introductions, syllabus);

  • Building Community (starting and maintaining discussions, fostering student peer support);

  • Blending the Course (integration of online activities into face-to-face content and activities);

  • Student Time Management and Coaching;

  • Assessment and Feedback

Please register by Wednesday, January 30th. You will receive information via email about accessing the Moodle site before the seminar begins on Feb. 1st.
