Proposal ID: 102076
Type: New Course
Submission Date: March 16, 2018 4:35pm
Effective Term: Summer 2018
The fields of teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and dual language education are constantly changing and growing. In January, Oregon's Teacher Standards and Practices Commission approved plans for our new Dual Language Specialization teacher licensure program (non-degree), which focuses on improving instructional practice for teachers in K-12 bilingual, two-way immersion programs. Our plan includes strategic overlap with current courses in our ESOL Endorsement teacher licensure program (also non-degree).

We expect the Dual Language Specialization to attract educators who already have an ESOL Endorsement on their Oregon K-12 teaching licenses. Some of those endorsements will be based on coursework prior to significant changes in theory, policy, and instructional practices. Rather than asking Dual Language Specialization candidates to repeat several foundational ESOL courses, we would offer this course to focus on recent developments.

We expect this course to also attract teachers searching for professional development in K-12 teaching related to English learners and other emergent bilingual students. We do not currently offer any advanced Ecampus coursework in this area beyond courses required for the ESOL Endorsement. While we are submitting proposals for two new Dual Language courses, these will be taught bilingually in Spanish and English, and they will be more narrowly focused on linguistics and literacy. ED 560 will be taught in English and have a broader audience.
