Meeting Description:

The Center for the Languages of the Central Asian Region (CeLCAR) invites you to attend a free Workshop on Online LCTL Teaching, all day on Friday, May 22, 2015, at the IMU Memorial Union at Indiana University.

This workshop for teachers of less commonly taught languages (LCTLs) is co-sponsored by the Mellon Innovating International Research, Teaching, and Collaboration (MIIRT) fellowship and the Inner Asian and Uralic National Resource Center (IAUNRC) at Indiana University. It will focus on the unique challenges facing the less commonly taught language community as we strive to move more of our languages to online teaching platforms. The workshop’s four invited speakers are renowned experts in the field and will present on contemporary issues and real-life solutions applicable to transfer your language courses to an online learning environment:

Nelleke Van Deusen-Scholl, Yale University
Rick Kern, University of California, Berkeley
Binbin Zheng, Michigan State University
Sun-Young Shin, Indiana University

CeLCAR’s own Online Team will also present the experience and lessons learned in developing online courses for less commonly taught languages of Central Asia.

If you are currently developing an online language course or have considered developing an online language course in the future, don’t miss this free workshop! Register now at

Attendance is limited and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
