Designing Remote and Hybrid ESOL Programming around Student Choice
This webinar showcases how Holyoke Community College redesigned its ESOL
program (WIOA Title II funded) to foster student choice and independent learning, while
addressing students’ digital skill development and device needs. Examples will illustrate
ways in which student choice and a metacognitive focus are expressed differently at
distinct student language proficiency levels, in fully remote and hybrid programming. We
will also hear about early outcomes from and student feedback on the redesigned
program. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss their own ESOL program
redesign choices or plans. The webinar will also touch on key considerations for
designing and scaling remote programs identified by this research.
Holyoke Community College’s program is one of eight case studies of innovative ESOL
programs from around the U.S. featured by the Remote ESOL project as part of its
landscape scan of technology-enabled ESOL programs and practices.
