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.

Instructors who are well equipped to use technology effectively with their adult learners can create better course outcomes. Some of these standards are ongoing, such as those that encourage instructors to stay abreast of research and exemplary practice. Administrators can help create professional development opportunities for instructors to meet or exceed the standards. Administrators should also refer to the Avenue Program Standards for TELL and Avenue Learner Standards for TELL to find more guidance for their own actions.
