2011-2012 World Language Webinars


Flyer with complete list of all 10 World Language webinars for 2011-2012:

There will be three types of World Language webinars broadcast during 2011 – 2012:
  • Race to the Top Summer Institute Group (RttT SI Group) webinars at 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. on Thursday afternoons (Oct. 6, Dec. 8, Feb. 9, Apr. 12)
    These are scheduled quarterly as specified for the Race to the Top initiatives. All RttT SI Group members are invited to participate in the DPI Update and IHE & LEA Coordinator webinars as well, especially with the understanding that there is considerable overlap with these three groups. See the Race to the Top Quarterly Webinars flyer:
  • DPI Update webinars open to all NC World Language Educators at 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. on Thursday evenings (Nov. 10, Jan. 12, May 10)
    The suggestion to have DPI Update webinars was made several years ago, and, now that web conferencing software is more readily available and stable, we will be able to try this idea out.
  • IHE & LEA Coordinator webinars at 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. on Friday mornings (Dec. 9, Feb. 10, June 15)
    Sharing information with our colleagues at Institutes of Higher Education (IHE) is always a priority, and past face-to-face coordinator meetings have paired these two groups together. Now we'll see if a virtual version might allow all involved to meet regularly throughout the year.

Registration information with links will be sent in update messages 1-2 weeks in advance and also posted on this page prior to the broadcasts.

All materials (PowerPoint presentations, handouts, etc.) and a link to the webinar archive will be posted on this page within one week following the broadcasts. Feel free to access this information as needed.
