In addition to the resources available for students, ALTEC has a number of programs and systems in place designed specifically for foreign language teachers.
The HIVE is open in all foreign language faculty and students.
The ALTEC PC and Mac Classrooms are both available for teacher use.
If you would like to reserve a space for your class please see the Facilities page for more information and reservation links.
Instructors may also reserve the tutoring room (Hellems 152B, in the back of the PC Classroom) for private instruction or for use as a quiet area for office hours. The room may be reserved by contacting the Resource Coordinator (Rebecca Allison: firstname.lastname@example.org, 303-492-8224).
ALTEC offers all foreign language teachers free media digitizing and online media streaming through Canvas. To stream a film for your class, fill out a Media Streaming Request Form.
The ALTEC Writing Guides are designed to help teachers move the process of learning to type in a new language outside the classroom. ALTEC provides guides for several different methods ranging from simple copy-paste to full IME (Input Method Editor) manipulation. If you would like to create a new page specifically for your language, please contact us at email@example.com.
The Career Resources page has been built specifically for current and prospective foreign language students seeking information about finding employment in their field and using their second language.
Are you looking to expand you language skills? If so, you may be interested in participating in one of ALTEC's Language Classes, which run for eight weeks each semester. CU faculty, staff, graduate students, retirees, and spouses are eligible for substantially subsidized tuition rates.
Our book collection covers many angles on teaching and learning, and we encourage input on titles that may have inspired you to use new and innovative teaching practices. If you have a suggestion for our collection in The HIVE, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a language instructor at CU Boulder, you can fill out a Course Material Purchase Request Form.
CU Boulder candidates for secondary teaching licensure in Spanish, French and Japanese must pass an oral proficiency test as one of the requirements for licensure.
