NFLRC / L2TReC Summer Institute:
Planning for Project-Based Language Learning (PBLL)
June 10-16, 2020 • University of Utah
This onsite five-day institute, featuring a two-day weekend break, is designed for world language educators who have some knowledge of Project-Based Learning (PBL) as well as some practice in generating project ideas. During the Institute, participants will flesh out their ideas for a project design they have already subjected to critique. Applicants must complete the prerequisite NFLRC MOOC (massive open online course) Envisioning Project-Based Language Learning and earn a badge in order to qualify for consideration for the Institute. Participants who fulfill requirements outlined in an associated course syllabus may opt to receive two (2) graduate course credits (tuition fee).
The summer institute will be held at the University of Utah, located in Salt Lake City, Utah, and will be co-sponsored and co-organized by NFLRC and L2TReC.
