This training module is intended for individuals involved in the development and administration of learning centers for adult English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) instruction. It focuses on the design of multimedia (ESL) learning centers and the equipment and materials used in them. It begins with a description of learning center models and issues to address in selecting one, including use of the models in existing program circumstances or use in expansion to serve new populations. Following this are exercises to aid ESL professionals in evaluation of software for language learning and integration of computer-assisted language learning (CALL) into ESL instruction.
