One of CLEAR's main project areas is strengthening the teaching of foreign languages through high quality professional development workshops on current topics in language pedagogy. CLEAR offers a wide variety of professional development workshops for foreign language instructors of all languages and levels, both on MSU's campus and onsite. Online tools for teacher training are also available.
Every summer since 1997, CLEAR has offered professional development workshops. Teachers of all levels from all over the country (and internationally) have come to MSU's campus for these practical, informative and timely courses. The range of workshop topics includes both skills-based workshops and sessions on how to incorporate technology into the language classroom.
Onsite workshops bring members of CLEAR's professional development staff to K-13+ institutions across the country. Workshop topics include both methodology and technology-related areas.
