Workshop
OER Hangout - Impact of OER on teaching practices

Join us to hear how engagement with OER and/or OEP influenced the teaching practices of four language instructors. There will be a 25 minute presentation segement, and the rest of the time will be for questions and discussion. Information about presenters and their work: Sonia Balasch worked with a team of colleagues to create Español y cultura en perspectiva: A collection of nine critical-thinking thematic lessons composed of Spanish language readings and communicative activities for intermediate-level students of Spanish. Margherita Berti created Italian Open Education, a website that offers a collection of openly-licensed and free-to-use 360-degree virtual reality videos for Italian learners and teachers. Julianne Hammink is working with the Center for ESL at the University of Arizona to develop instructional materials for ESL and Academic Pathways programs. These materials are developed from Open Educational Resources. They are finishing the first year of the project, and many of our instructional materials are now in use. David Thompson completed a series of problem-based learning units for advanced students of Spanish available to instructors online as OER to use or modify. The purpose of the units is to provide advanced students of Spanish a series of compelling problems from Spanish culture and society to solve collaboratively in small teams.

2019 NFLRC Webinars: Harnessing High-Leverage Teaching Practices (HLTPs) in Project-Based Language Learning (PBLL)

In our two-part NFLRC Webinars titled Harnessing HLTPs in PBLL, we will explore the question “What HLTP concepts would help me design, develop, and implement PBLL experiences more effectively?” In order to get maximum benefit from the two webinars, we recommend that you 1) familiarize yourself with the six High-Leverage Teaching Practices (HLTPs) beforehand and 2) have experience with Project-Based Language Learning (PBLL). This, however, is not a requirement, and any participant with interest in both is welcome to attend. NOTE: These webinars will be recorded and made available at a later date. Webinar 1: Wednesday, June 5 (PBLL & HLTPs #1-3) Host: Nicole Naditz Guests: Adam Ross & Rachel Mamiya Hernandez Webinar 2: Wednesday, June 12 (PBLL & HLTPs #4-6) Host: Nicole Naditz Guests: Megan Ferry & Laura Sexton Session times (two 90-minute live webinars) 2pm Hawai‘i | 5pm PST | 6pm MST | 7pm CST | 8pm EST Cost Free To register, visit our webpage: https://nflrc.hawaii.edu/events/view/121/.

All LRCs
Previous LRC
Next LRC
In 1990, the Department of Education established the first Language Resource Centers (LRCs) at U.S. universities in response to the growing national need for expertise and competence in foreign languages. Now, twenty-five years later, Title VI of the Higher Education Act supports sixteen LRCs, creating a national network of resources to promote and improve the teaching and learning of foreign languages.

LRCs create language learning and teaching materials, offer professional development opportunities for language instructors, and conduct and disseminate research on foreign language learning. All LRCs engage in efforts that enable U.S. citizens to better work, serve, and lead.

8 Areas of Focus

Each LRC has a unique story and mission, but all LRC work is organized around eight basic areas:
  • Research
  • Teaching materials
  • Digital tools and resources
  • Assessment
  • Professional development
  • Less commonly taught languages initiatives
  • K-12 initiatives
  • Outreach and dissemination

Contact Us

You may also contact each LRC individually by locating their directory information in the Meet the LRCs menu.
