Project
In accordance with the mandate of the UNF of Canada National Ukrainian Schools Initiatives Committee, the E-Resources for Ukrainian Learning Project has produced annual or periodic volumes of selected online resources for Ukrainian language teaching and learning. Each volume is dedicated to a different aspect of digital pedagogy for second language acquisition. The aim of the project is to advance the notion of teacher research in the joint quest to improve Ukrainian language teacher digital competency and self-efficacy. By extension, it is hoped that a broad-based Community of Practice (CoP) will evolve across the diaspora through Web-based interactions relating to Integrated Learning Design (ILD). In-servicing takes place through workshops, conferences, and webinars, both co-located and web-based, organized by or in cooperation with the UNF of Canada and other community educational umbrella organizations.
