Avenue Learner Standards for TELL

The Avenue Learner Standards for Technology-Enhanced Language Learning (TELL) are designed to
give instructors and administrators a framework for providing lessons and course offerings that build
learner competence with technology, primarily for language learning and use. These standards are
meant to work in concert with Avenue Instructor Standards and Avenue Program Standards.

Avenue Instructor Standards for TELL

The Avenue Instructor Standards for Technology-Enhanced Language Learning (TELL) incorporate
the latest research and practices and are written in plain language. Every effort has been made to make
them user-friendly and accessible to the adult ESL/FSL sector. While these standards are designed for
language instructors, they can be helpful to program administrators as well.

Avenue Program Standards for TELL

The Avenue Program Standards for Technology-Enhanced Language Learning (TELL) are designed to
help those in decision-making roles in a language program. They provide guidance to administrators,
here defined to include both immediate and upper-level decision-makers such as funders, directors,
deans, and school boards. Program administrators can use the can-do statements to determine how
closely aligned their program is with the standards.
