Place- and Experience-based Database Language Learning (PEBLL)
Web

Description

Helping students make the connection between their language study and their daily lives can increase both their motivation and their proficiency. Place-based programs are an excellent option for helping students identify how language intersects with lives outside of the classroom. PEBLL, a curated database of place-based experiences relevant to language learning, helps educators expand learning to happen outside of the classroom. PEBLL ensures that high-quality projects are easily accessible to language educators from all over the world. Each project included in PEBLL is geo-tagged and categorized by language, level, and content area so that educators can find existing programs and services for immediate classroom use or for adaption to their own local contexts. PEBLL is a joint project between CASLS and the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (COERLL).

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.
