2016 Project-Based Language Learning & Interculturality Intensive Summer Institute

How can Project-Based Language Learning (PBLL) help learners develop interculturality -- the ability to inhabit and interpret different cultures and to see one's own culture through the eyes of another? How do I design rigorous PBLL projects to incorporate intercultural telecollaborations? The NFLRC 2016 Intensive Summer Institute (ISI) will help you answer these questions with guidance from experts in the field through a dynamic, technology-rich professional development experience. You will further develop a Project Blueprint for your own language classroom assisted by colleagues and guided by a group of language professionals with background in PBL, language pedagogy, instructional technology, and assessment.

In-service K-16 world language educators are invited to apply for this on-site, in-person institute. The NFLRC 2016 Intensive Summer Institute is not a beginner's workshop. In order to join, applicants will need to first create an interculturality-focused Project Blueprint and earn a digital badge from the 2016 Fundamentals of Project-Based Language Learning Online Institute as a prerequisite. Seats are limited and applications will be competitive. Partial funding available for the top 10 eligible applicants.
