Core Practices in World Language Education

College of Education and Human Ecology

The Ohio State University online Graduate Certificate Program in Core Practices in World Language Education is the only program of its type in the country that engages practicing world language teachers from around the United States in the study of, application of, and critical reflection on the use core practices for teaching a world language. This cohort approach engages participants in a community of professional practice in which they evolve as world language teachers in their application of practices that enable them to bring the best/high-quality instruction to their students. Because the program is online, and based on the most current research in effective world language teaching practice, we can be responsive to the evolving needs of our teacher participants by continually engaging with stakeholders around the country.
