Instructors who wish to join the design project will participate in just one phase of foundational training. The two trainings are identical. We are offering two different schedules to accommodate both in-town and out-of-town participants. Please choose the schedule that best suits your needs.
Participants who complete the program with at least 90% participation 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. All participants who are able are encouraged to bring laptops with USB wifi capabilities for practical work during training sessions.
