Envisioning Project-Based Language Learning (PBLL) is designed as an open-enrollment course for language educators beginning to learn about Project-based Language Learning (PBLL). Successful learners will be able to describe essential features of high quality PBLL and to generate high-quality ideas for projects using the Product Square. An optional badge is available at a small fee for candidates fulfilling course requirements.
Registration and the content for this MOOC is FREE. However, if you wish to earn the optional digital badge for completion afterwards, you will need to meet the badge criteria and pay a nominal fee ($25) to have your submitted materials evaluated by NFLRC staff.
Course opens on January 1, 2020 and closes on March 31, 2020. If you register during Fall 2019, you will be sent an email on January 1 with your online course login information.
The following is a selection of targeted learning outcomes for this massive open online course (MOOC):
Instruction spans five modules, for an equivalent of five hours' contact time (or one-half CEU). A digital badge is conferred on participants who complete specified tasks in the MOOC and submit them for evaluation.
Digital badge submission deadline: March 31, 2020
