2022 Summer Institutes for Language Teachers

The CARLA summer institutes listed below are primarily targeted at elementary through postsecondary foreign/world language educators and language teacher educators. In some cases, the institutes are also appropriate for ESL or EFL teachers. Many of the institutes are not appropriate for the special needs of immersion educators, though two are directly targeted at DLI educators. The institutes are not meant for teachers of very young children (pre-K/K). Click the title for detailed information about each institute; refer to the bottom of each page for more information about the target audience to make sure that the institute is suitable for your teaching context.

The 2022 CARLA Summer Institutes will be offered:

Asynchronous Institutes—Important Information
  • Asynchronous institutes are primarily conducted on the participant's own time, but are not available after the specified time period.
  • Asynchronous institutes include preset deadlines for activities. The deadlines are important, as the activities build on each other and involve facilitation from the instructor and collaboration with other participants.
  • Some of the asynchronous institutes also include some mandatory synchronous sessions.
  • Registrants must check dates/times of any synchronous sessions to ensure their ability to fully participate. They must also be available to work on activities during the specified time period of the institute.
Synchronous Institutes—Important Information
  • Synchronous institutes meet online in real time via Zoom.
  • Synchronous institutes include time to work independently off-screen; however, much of the class time will be spent online in large group and small group activities.
  • Registrants must be available to participate for each entire day during the institute.
