The purpose of this session is to present the development of a methods course intended to prepare K-12 pre-service and in-service world language teachers to apply instructional design and technology to enhance standards-based lessons. With the backward design model, the ACTFL/CAEP Program Standards for the Preparation of Foreign Language Teachers and the World-Readiness Standards for Learning Languages are the building blocks for developing the course. Knowing the course and lesson objectives, the course developer can design weekly assignments as formative assessments and a final project as the summative assessment as evidences of the students' outcome. This laboratory course, where the instructor gives a lecture followed by students' discussion and exploration on the topics and technologies, will guide students to understand the knowledge and practices of technology in world language education and promote hands-on experience in creating technology-assisted language learning activities and materials.
