Join our CARLA Diigo Groups - we bookmark articles and other resources in this Diigo group, along with other summer institute participants. When you join, you not only get notified when resources are added, but you can add to the resources yourself - please share what you find.  We invite you to join the groups - and contribute to them!

  • CARLAtech - this group has a focus of integration of technology in language teaching and learning.

Conferences & Courses about teaching technology and/or teaching online

  • InSync Training for Synchronous Learners - "Learn How to Learn Online"
    A 1-hour virtual training opportunity that might give you a taste of what you could do in a synchronous session.
    It's a free course, not specific to language learning, but it would give you an idea of some tools that can be used in synchronous, large group meetings.  I would look at it through the lens of “what activities / tools are the moderators using to engage me as a learner and how could I adapt these for language activities?”
  • ACTFL Distance Learning SIG and Hawaii LRC materials - modules for learning to teaching online
  • TESOL's Certificate program for learning how to teach online
  • The LARC workshop recordings of their summer sessions are online and worth watching. 
  • Digital Pedagogy Lab - this is an online conference for those interested in the intersection of digital learning, critical pedagogy, and social justice. Unlike typical conferences, participants choose a track to learn about with a cohort of learners in a participatory and active fashion. 
  • Online Graduate Certificate in Technology Integration
    The Anderson Language & Technology Center at the University of Colorado at Boulder now offers a fully online graduate certificate in technology integration in the language classroom.
