ACTFL is expanding its team of presenters by supporting and mentoring a new group of Facilitators-in-Training (FIT). From the many who responded to the open invitation to join ACTFL as a workshop presenter, ACTFL selected six educators to enter this presenter pipeline. They bring diverse perspectives and backgrounds in the levels (K-16) and languages (Arabic, French, Korean, Spanish) taught. The FITs now begin their individual journeys through three stages: shadowing ACTFL presenters (joining in scheduled workshops and helping with small group/breakout room discussions), co-presenting ACTFL workshops (with coaching and feedback), and leading workshops during an initial period supported with a mentor. The process focuses on deepening each presenter’s content background, facilitation strategies, and presentation skills through collaboration with mentors, networking with the FIT group, and personal reflection. Please join us in congratulating our six new FITs, and be on the lookout for our next call for applications soon!
