Professional Development on the Go
CASLS understands the pressures of today’s teaching environment. Time and resource scarcities make finding time to engage in professional development difficult.
To help educators navigate this reality, CASLS is developing a series of free professional development modules. Each asynchronous module is comprised of several lessons and provides educators with an overview of the stated topic. All modules imbed a special focus on contemporary trends in language education, such as career-related connections, and include both opportunities to reflect and checks for understanding along the way. Also, because each lesson is mobile-friendly and designed to last for about 15 minutes, they are easy to complete on the go!
Thank you, educators! We will continue to post these modules here as they are developed.

- What is self-directed learning?
- How can I support learners in setting their own goals?
- What pragmatic concepts should learners understand for intercultural communicative competence?
