Professional Development

The Center for Urban Language Teaching and Research (CULTR) firmly believes teachers are the heart and soul of education. Focused on schools in urban areas, CULTR offers world language teachers the necessary backing they need to properly give their students the skills and support that leads to proficiency in all languages. CULTR, nestled in metropolitan Atlanta at Georgia State University, continually assists teachers by capitalizing on our academic resources, professional networks, and track record of successful projects. In particular, CULTR offers a variety of immersive professional development workshops and a research-focused seminar on teacher retention. CULTR’s teacher workshops focus on innovative uses of technology in language teaching, classroom assessment practices, and methodologies for teaching heritage language students. The Language Teacher Retention Seminar, on the other hand, identifies strategies for effective teacher support and retention, motivation, and coping strategies.
