The Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition (CARLA) has announced the dates for its 2021 Summer Institutes. CARLA Summer Institutes are geared toward elementary, secondary, and post-secondary world language educators and language teacher educators. All Summer Institutes will take place virtually, in either synchronous or asynchronous format. Asynchronous institutes are completed on educators’ own time with preset deadlines, but many also include some synchronous sessions. Synchronous institutes meet live, in real time in Zoom (or similar video conferencing program).
