Crowdsourcing Successes and Challenges
This summer, a group of technologists and second language acquisition professionals formed the Teaching Languages Online Consortium to provide professional development opportunities to all University of Minnesota language instructors system-wide, including the workshop series that was offered August 10–14, 2020.
The Consortium has the following message of support and encouragement to all instructors preparing to launch into the unknown next week:
Success stories: We will resume this feature of ElsieTalk in the fall. No story is too small to share!
Challenges: What challenges are you facing in online/remote language instruction? We will share challenges anonymously and crowdsource solutions. The most popular solutions will be shared on ElsieTalk so all instructors can benefit.
The Teaching Languages Online Consortium is Adolfo Carrillo Cabello, Beth Kautz, Dan Soneson, Language Center; Marlene Johnshoy, Kate Paesani, CARLA; Shana Crosson, Colin McFadden, LATIS; Alyssa Bonnac, CEI.
