Throughout its 4-year grant cycle, NFLRC will continue to offer its Teacher Portfolio & Preparation Series (TiPPS) workshops (summer and fall) and its Teaching Assistant Survival Society (TASS) sessions (fall and spring).

NFLRC will also regularly disseminate project products, outcomes and OERs annually at major professional conferences such as ACTFL and CALICO.

Publications

As part of its dissemination efforts, the NFLRC also supports a vigorous publications program, which publishes widely a full range of academic products, including scholarly books and academic journals in addition to language teaching materials. Research results are disseminated through three monograph series. NFLRC Monographs (Julio C Rodríguez, Series Editor) publishes both single authored and edited collections of research on NFLRC themes. Most of these books (35 published to date) report results from NFLRC projects. Two books are planned for this series: an update of the classic NFLRC monograph Second Language Development in Writing: Measures of Fluency, Accuracy, & Complexity, to be edited by Dr. Charlene Polio (Michigan State University) and a monograph on PBLL edited by Hui-Ya Chuang, Ruslan Suvorov, Stephen Tschudi, and Julio C Rodriguez. The Pragmatics & Language Learning series (Marta González-Lloret, Series Editor) publishes selected papers from the biannual international Pragmatics & Language Learning Conference, and the Pragmatics & Interaction series (Gabriele Kasper, Series Editor) publishes research on topics in pragmatics and discourse as social interaction from a wide variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives, focusing especially on Asian and Pacific languages.

The NFLRC also publishes language teaching materials in a wide variety of formats, ranging from small-scale manuals produced in-house (for materials with a small or highly specialized potential audience) to high-quality textbooks.  Increasingly, the NFLRC emphasizes electronic publication, and almost all of our language teaching materials are now available as OERs. To help disseminate publications and events, the NFLRC also maintains an active presence in three social media outlets: Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

 

The NFLRC additionally disseminates a wealth of knowledge to the profession by supporting three refereed online journals.

Language Learning & Technology (LLT)

Launched by the NFLRC in 1997, Language Learning & Technology (LLT) has become one of the most respected journals in foreign language education. It has been in the top 10 linguistics journals and the top 15 education journals over the past three-year European Reference Index for the Humanities (ERIH) rating period.

Reading in a Foreign Language (RFL)

Founded in 1983 at the University of Aston, England, as a print journal and transferred to Hawai‘i in 2002 as an online refereed journal, Reading in a Foreign Language (RFL) has since established itself as an excellent source for the latest developments in the field.

Language Documentation & Conservation (LDC)

Initiated in 2007, Language Documentation & Conservation (LDC) focuses on topics such as assessing ethnolinguistic vitality, problems of data collection, orthography design, reference grammar design, lexicography, literacy, archiving, & ethical issues, related to endangered languages.
