ANNOUNCEMENTS

AUDII 2021

We are excited announce a hybrid version of AUDII for this year and to restore 2 in-person professional learning days focused on the pedagogy and literacy portions of AUDII!

Below, you will find all the details of AUDII 2021, including the course numbers to facilitate registration, dates, locations and times for all AUDII sessions. 

The USBE will automatically register all Utah international teachers for AUDII. An email will be sent to them with instructions on how to set up a CANVAS account. Once local teachers register for AUDII, they will also receive an email with instructions on how to set up their CANVAS accounts

Based on the feedback from teachers and administrators, the hybrid model this year has been structured to maximize flexibility for local as well as international teachers. Teachers who register and complete the AUDII requirements outlined in this document will receive USBE credit.

We hope your teachers will be excited to embark in this new trajectory of professional growth as they prepare to become model DLI teachers!

We look forward to meeting and working closely with your new teachers this upcoming school year!

Mil gracias,

Ofelia and the State Spanish DLI Team

What?


AUDII (The Annual Utah Dual Language Immersion Institute), is the initial DLI training for teachers in their first year in DLI or teachers who are in their second year who have completed one AUDII. This year, instead of the traditional week-long Dual Language Immersion Institute, we will have a hybrid model that will include the use of online, self-paced CANVAS modules, virtual (via Zoom) sessions and two days of in-person professional learning.

The total teacher time required to participate in the three components of this year’s hybrid model will equate to the same professional learning time in a traditional 4-day AUDII.

  • The online modules will be open from June 14-July 23. These online modules will take a total of 4 hours to complete.
  • The live (via Zoom) sessions are scheduled for the week of July 26-30 and will take a maximum of 9 hours to complete, depending on the year and grade level of the teacher.
  • The two in-person days will be held on Tuesday, August 3 & Wednesday, August 4 and will account for the remaining two days of AUDII.

Who?

Teachers new to DLI

  • Secondary Spanish teachers new to the Dual Language Immersion Program should register in MIDAS for the Spanish AUDII course number 59379: Section 3
  • Secondary Teachers new to DLI in 2020, who registered for AUDII last year and did not receive credit should register in MIDAS for the Spanish AUDII course number 59379: Section 3
