CAL offers a growing cadre of self-paced online courses to help educators learn while they earn credit. These online courses are based on our decades of research on how language is learned and extensive experience in working with educators to help language learners succeed. Each course provides an introduction to the research base of the topic focused on strategies, and information to enhance educator knowledge and practical tools that can be used in the classroom.
The cost is affordable and each course can be done at your own pace. At the end of each course, participants will receive a CAL Certificate of Completion that can often be used to obtain continuing educational credits from your school or district.
CAL also offers tiered pricing to schools and districts who wish to have groups of teachers participate in our online courses.
