Setting Up Language Students to Succeed

With Anne Becher, Senior Instructor, Spanish & Portuguese; Yumiko Matsunaga, Teaching Professor, Japanese and Sandrine Vandermarliere, Instructor, French & Italian

This session is designed to help new TAs prepare to teach beginning-level language classes through demonstrations of mostly target-language interactive Zoom lessons and sharing of sample asynchronous activities (i.e. on the discussion board and Voice Thread). We will also discuss the complex process of integrating these modalities with in-person classes. 

This workshop will take place remotely, via Zoom. You will need to be logged in to Zoom with your CU credentials to access this session. 

Slides will be shared with participants. Live captioning and ASL interpretation are available upon request. Email to request accommodations. We will attempt to fulfill all requests, but cannot guarantee requests made within 7 days of the event.

This session is part of the CTL’s Fall Intensive, an annual event supporting the development of graduate students as teaching scholars. The workshops are designed to help you teach at CU Boulder, begin your professional development in postsecondary education, and explore nonacademic job opportunities. While sessions are designed for graduate students, many are applicable to any educator new to CU Boulder and anyone is welcome at any event.
