Each year, CERCLL hosts one or more series of professional learning webinars for language educators, with topics selected from among requests that we have received from participants in our previous professional development events. This Spring, the series focuses on AI integration in the language classroom:

Rebooting Language Education-AI-tion

In recent years, cutting edge tech tools such as neural machine translation (NMT), generative AI and extended reality (XR) have given rise to a mixture of excitement and concern as to their potential uses. In this webinar series, the opportunities and challenges these tools present will be explored and the pedagogies they require examined for the purpose of rebooting language teaching and learning.

More details to come, stay tuned!

The webinars are free to attend, but participants must register in advance. Participants who attend these events live can request a certificate of attendance for 1.5 hours of continuing education for each webinar they attend. In addition, live attendees will be contacted after each webinar with information about how to apply for a digital badge.
