CERCLL offers professional development opportunities to K-16 foreign and second language teachers throughout the year in the form of workshops wherein research is connected with practice. The workshops are developed and offered with the support, in part, of the U.S. Department of Education’s Title VI Language Resource Center program. Support also comes from the College of Education, the College of Humanities, and the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Arizona, as well as other sponsors of individual events.


Summer Workshops Series

Since its inception, CERCLL has offered summer workshops in which research and theory are linked with practical applications for the language classroom. In these workshops, University of Arizona faculty and faculty from other institutions share what they have learned through their research and teaching with participants. Each workshop includes discussion, hands-on activities, and opportunities for networking with colleagues.

CERCLL summer workshop participants come from the U.S. and beyond. They often include foreign and second language teachers as well language program directors and language teacher educators. We thank all those who joined us at these events. Read more about previous years workshops above.

The summer workshops take place on the University of Arizona campus from 9 am to 4 pm each day, generally with a break for lunch at Noon (though this is often a working lunch). Participants may attend one, all, or any number of the workshops in the series. Attendance is free, but everyone must register; seating is limited, so registering early is advised to secure your space.
