You will have ample time to network and discuss issues with fellow LCTL instructors in addition to having focused sessions on the following topics:

  • Use and understand concept of reverse design
  • Examine proficiency standards that are relevant to your program and students
  • Dialogue about best practices regarding the use of authentic and designed materials in the classroom
  • Learn the basics about your rights and responsibilities when it comes to copyright and open access materials
