NFLRC Projects

NFLRC research, materials, and professional development projects for the 2010-2014 grant cycle focus primarily on the teaching and learning of the less commonly-taught languages of East Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific, drawing on institutional strengths in the teaching of these languages at the University of Hawai'i as well as in the disciplines of applied linguistics, ESL, and second language acquisition. Each project includes the following key elements:

  • selection of one or more less commonly-taught languages as the demonstration language, based on national needs and institutional resources
  • incorporation of advanced educational technology
  • integration of research and materials development projects with teacher training activities
  • dissemination of research findings, instructional materials, tests, and other products to the broadest possible audience of potential users
  • evaluation component for each project
  • linkages with institutional programs (including other Title VI programs) and national associations to ensure maximum effectiveness and leverage for all projects
