Description

Teaching Methodology / Languages

Blended synchronous learning (BSL), where some students are present in a physical classroom while others participate online in real time, represents a next step in the evolution of teaching and learning in the digital age. In Teaching Languages in Blended Synchronous Learning Classrooms, Alba Girons and Nicholas Swinehart provide a concise overview of BSL as it pertains to language instruction, particularly to less commonly taught languages, or LCTLs. Girons and Swinehart cover a number of key topics:

- types of BSL environments

- pedagogical considerations

- group dynamics

- creating and adapting activities

- common logistical challenges

- optimal space design

- technology selection, training, and support

This practical guide will be of use to teachers, technology staff, and program administrators, all working together to implement successful BSL programs and ensure quality learning opportunities for every student.

Alba Girons is the director of the Catalan Language Program and a senior lecturer at the University of Chicago. She has been offering her Catalan courses in blended synchronous environments since 2015.

Nicholas Swinehart is an instructional technologist and researcher at the University of Chicago, specializing in language pedagogy, assessment, and coordinating technological and administrative aspects of blended synchronous language courses.
