Starting in the Spring 2020, both Level-1 and Level-2 courses were piloted by Arabic Language Flagship programs at the University of Arizona, University of Maryland, University of Texas at Austin, Indiana University – Bloomington, and Brigham Young University. Through these pilots, which were implemented in a variety of instructional modes (facilitated, self-paced, blended-learning, etc.), we have accumulated valuable knowledge and experiences. The interviews below provide insights and recommendations regarding how these courses can be best utilized to meet various learning needs.
