Less Commonly Taught Languages (LCTL) Partnership


The Less Commonly Taught Languages (LCTL) Partnership, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is housed in CeLTA. This cross-university initiative utilizes the established and widely recognized strengths within the Big Ten Academic Alliance to collaboratively develop an online model of LCTL instruction reflecting best practices in proficiency-oriented instruction. The project includes research in LCTL proficiency assessment, goal setting, curricular and technological innovations, as well as teacher education and professional development.
