Video-Based Virtual Interaction for Development

of Teachers of Less-Commonly-Taught Languages

Teachers of LCTLs often come to language teaching from other fields, missing out on crucial training opportunities. Furthermore, LCTL instructors are often isolated in their teaching contexts and may have limited options for materials and curricula. To address these needs, the Virtual Video-based Inquiry for the Development of LCTL Teachers (ViVID) invites cohorts of currently practicing LCTL instructors to engage in reflective teaching and peer-mentoring.
