Now in its third year, the TELL Collab brings together world language educators to explore, model, and share effective language learning practices identified by the TELL Framework. The two and a half day professional learning experience includes a mixture of collaborative sessions, presentations and resource sharing for both teachers and administrators. Teachers receive help identifying their own professional learning goals and learn strategies for meeting their goals. Administrators receive guidance on how to use the TELL Framework with their teachers.

At the TELL Collab 2017 in Austin, we’ve added an extra half day of workshop time to allow participants to get acquainted with the latest information on proficiency and open educational practices. During the next two days, choose to follow two of three tracks: learning targets, target language teaching, and performance assessments.

Space is limited! Learn more about what to expect, and register now to reserve your spot.
