With the advent of new and evolving technologies, foreign language instructors are now increasingly expected to develop and teach online courses. Even instructors with a solid grasp of technology find themselves overwhelmed by the design and instruction of these courses. How do you know if a student understands the material? How do we adapt and assess classroom assignments to an online format? The presenters will share research, practical tips, assignments and resources for teaching HL online.
