The teaching and learning of Less Commonly Taught Languages (LCTLs) is an integral part of the move towards a more multicultural and diverse society, one equipped to meet the critical needs of the 21st century. Yet, assessment and program evaluation opportunities for LCTL programs remain limited today, restricting effective expansion and innovative practices. The AELRC will be hosting a synchronous webinar series titled “Advancing LCTLs: Assessment and Evaluation for Cross-cultural Communication” to address the gap in LCTL evaluation opportunities and open up a dialogue about best assessment practices. Each 30-minute episode of this series aims to center the needs of underserved programs and educators, with topics ranging from C-test uses, the Intercultural Pragmatic Interactional Competence (IPIC) Assessment, and more.
