COERLL is a federally funded Title VI language resource center. We work with instructors to produce, share and promote open educational resources to support language teaching and learning.

On our website, you can access free, teacher-created resources for use in your language classroom. All of our resources carry open Creative Commons licenses so you are allowed to make copies and adapt them to your students’ interests and proficiency level.

We can also advise you in creating and publishing classroom activities, curricula, and anything in between to share with other language instructors, and we provide free professional development webinars, as well as affordable summer workshops on different topics in open education and language pedagogy.

If you teach a language, you are probably already creating new resources. By sharing these resources in a community of like-minded teachers, you can get more visibility for your work and maybe even find some creative new ideas!
