2017 Intensive Summer Institute: Pathways to Project-Based Language Learning (PBLL)

Join us in exploring the use of Project-Based Language Learning (PBLL) as a framework for crafting compelling environments and experiences for language learners. During the NFLRC 2017 Intensive Summer Institute held in Hawai‘i, inservice K–16 world language educators will learn how to orchestrate rich, experiential language learning opportunities that draw on a diverse array of disciplines and career pathways. After participating in an abbreviated, face-to-face, PBLL experience, each participant will design a well-scaffolded project for use in their own language classes. Join a team of experts with background in PBLL, language pedagogy, career and technical education, and assessment in redefining what it means to teach, transforming what it is possible for students to learn, and discovering how to craft more compelling lives for ourselves in the process! Please note: This is not a beginner’s workshop. Applicants must first earn a digital badge from the Fundamentals of PBLL Online Institute as a prerequisite. Seats are limited and applications are competitive. Community college instructors interested in creating interdisciplinary connections will receive special consideration.
