Delivering language instruction remotely

Virtual brownbags

With the need to move instruction online in a very short timeframe in Spring 2020, the Language Institute facilitated a series of informal virtual brownbags for UW-Madison instructors who are teaching languages remotely. The brownbags were moderated by Language Institute director Dianna Murphy and held on Blackboard Collaborate.
