Instructors who wish to join the design project will participate in just one phase of foundational training.
Participants who complete the program with at least 90% participation (no more than 2 hours absence) will receive a certificate of completion from the two officiants of the program: National Research Center for Innovations in Teaching Foreign Languages and U.S. English Language Programs.
Eligibility for Stages 2 and 3
Participants who earn a certificate will then be eligible to join Stage 2 of the project in which the teams develop a model textbook to be used as a template by individual designers in Stage 3.
Preparing for Training
Trainees should download the textbook, Bridges, an example of work from our English Language Specialist, Dee Broughton. The book will be useful for discussing design techniques during training. Participants who are able should bring laptops to work on. Internet access via USB modem or mobile phone will be very helpful. All participants must sign up for our email list to receive important training information.
