Foreign Language Technology Program (FLTP)

The Foreign Language Technology Program (FLTP) is a non-degree program offering training in the theories and practices of technology intergration in language instruction. The workshops are open to all CU-Boulder graduate students, faculty, and instructors of the foreign languages. ALTEC offers an average of six workshops per semester and an annual portfolio intensive.

The curriculum of the FLTP places an equal emphasis on the acquisition of instructional design principles and the development of technical skills. The language technology integration workshops address areas of foreign language instruction including literature and culture, and offer training in the most relevant technologies and design principles. Upon completion of the required workshops, students develop an online portfolio with assistance from the ALTEC team.

We maintain a calendar with all the classes available during the next three months.

The workshops usually take place in the ALTEC Labs (Hellems 145, 152). Participants may either sign-up online or call ALTEC (2-8224).

The Graduate Teacher Program (GTP) and FLTP are collaborating with a credit sharing agreement. Up to three FLTP workshops may be counted toward completion of the Graduate Teacher Program requirements. A workshop may not be double-counted toward completion of both programs. FLTP candidates may apply up to three non-ALTEC workshops towards the FLTP. You will need to document your participation in the credited event, and write a half page summary.

The FLTP is a non-credit program. If you would like to aquire a more in depth expertise in language technology, we highly recommend considering our Elevate Certificate Program.
