I created this professional development (PD) as the culminating project of CEP 820 Teaching Students Online. This was my first attempt at designing both a PD and a web-dependent course. I focused on developing cultural competency in teachers as it relates to language learning in Latino students. North Carolina has a fast growing Latino population, and this PD demonstrates my ability to help public schools adjust.
Latino language learners 101 is a hybrid live-online PD. While the course employs the most relevant and promising internet technologies in order to facilitate professional discourse and limit the time investment of working teachers, the most important work happens in face to face discussions.
