    COFLT is sending ten (10) members to ACTFL this year for free!

    Have you ever wished you could go to ACTFL's convention, the must-attend-language education event of the year? Do you wish to hear fabulous keynotes, connect with other fellow world language educators, and learn from thousands of innovative presenters? Now is your chance!

    ACTFL 2020 is going virtual this year and given our fall bi-state conference postponement, COFLT wants to give the ten lucky winners an opportunity to continue their professional growth and development to share with their students and colleagues. 

    COFLT will conduct the random drawing of current members on September 10, 2020.

    The ten winners will be invited to share their experience in the form of a short video, blog post, roundtable, or any other creative venue. 

    Please note that to receive this scholarship you must be a current member. If your membership is not renewed by September 10th, you will not be eligible for the $230 conference value (early bird registration conference fee and basic year membership). Further instructions will be sent to those selected.

    We ALL Can Do It:
    Empowering All Learners in the Language Classroom
    Presented by Rebecca Aubrey, ACTFL Teacher of the Year (2019)

    June 17, 10AM Arizona (10AM PDT/1PM EDT)

    Learning a language is no longer just about preparing for college, but about preparing all students to live in a globalized world. Thus, every student has a right to study languages and teachers need to meet their diverse needs. We typically add differentiation strategies after a lesson has been developed. This is time-consuming and disrespectful of the diversity of our students.

    In this webinar, participants will learn to differentiate through backwards design by individualizing proficiency targets within a common theme, empowering students to self-direct how they show their learning, and designing a variety of learning activities.  To learn more and register for this free online event, visit:

    A message from our friends at Michigan State University:

    As we all look for guidance on transitioning language courses online for summer and possibly the next academic year, I wanted to share a professional development opportunity available through the Center for Language Teaching advancement (CeLTA) and the English Language Center (ELC) at Michigan State University. 

    Introduction to Online Language Teaching is a fully online, six-week course designed for experienced classroom instructors who want to make the transition to teaching languages online. The course is led by a master instructor with extensive online teaching experience. While each participant will bring their own pedagogical background, the course presupposes a task-based, proficiency-oriented view of language instruction. Course participants will gain an understanding of key criteria and conceptual frameworks used to describe online pedagogy, and will develop expertise in the areas of course quality and design, accessibility, and media. We are offering two sessions of this course this summer:

    Summer Session 1: May 18th - June 26th

    Summer Session 2: July 6th - August 14th

    The online nature of the course exposes participants to all of the affordances and constraints of an online environment for language teaching and learning, allowing them to experience a student’s perspective firsthand. This includes engaging in a variety of tasks and discussions, which are meant to be a non-comprehensive sampling of the possibilities of online learning. Participants will receive feedback from the instructor and, by the end of the course, will have developed a principled plan for developing an online course at their own institution. For more information and instructions on how to sign up, please visit the course website at
    Michigan State University

    Please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly if you have any questions.
