Teleplaza

Description

Teleplaza facilitates telecollaborative connections among heritage Spanish and Latino Studies courses at the college level within the United States. You can use Teleplaza to find a project posted by another school, or to post your own project. Teleplaza projects can be integrated into language or content courses to support a variety of learning goals, such as development of proficiency, development of literacy, and exploration of specific content. Projects may range from short collaborations to semester-long partnerships. Instructors can select different modalities for communication for their projects (i.e., synchronous, asynchronous). By partnering with a heritage Spanish or Latino Studies course at a different college, instructors create a learning environment where communities with different experiences learn together and from each other. For example, in its pilot projects Teleplaza connected Latino students attending a community college on the East Coast with a heritage Spanish class at a private, 4-year school on the West Coast to discuss interpretations of the “American Dream” in the context of issues of unequal access to education. Another pilot connected Latino students of Caribbean descent with Latino students of Mexican descent, who together explored issues of language and identity.

All LRCs

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

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