A Long-Term Approach to FL TA Development
Heather Willis Allen, University of Miami, and Beatrice Dupuy,University of Arizona

The frontloading Foreign Language (FL) Teaching Assistant (TA) training paradigm has been viewed for some time as inadequate preparation for tomorrow’s FL professoriate. This workshop will present select materials and inquiry-based activities (concept mapping, goal setting, lesson study, etc.) that permeate a long-term FL TA development framework and show how these can lead TAs to gradually rethink and reorient the way they teach.
