2017 UVA Startalk Teacher Application
Warmest greetings from the 2017 VSCTA at the University of Virginia!

Application deadline: April 15th, 2017

Submission will be granted on a rolling basis, and spots will be filled up soon.

The program has received the federal STARTALK grant for 10 years in a row and established national reputation for its quality training and instruction. Last year, the UVa STARTALK TEACHER training program, in conjunction with the UVa STARTALK STUDENT program, marked its historical juncture to transition from blended learning to online learning. This year the program aims to continue the groundbreaking model for online teaching. Teachers will learn how to teach 9-12 graders (intermediate-low proficiency level) ONLINE during the program.

We thank you in advance for your interest. As you fill out the application please write out the answers to longer questions on a local word processing program on your computer before copying and pasting it into the online document. There is no way to save your answers in the online document before submission, and any error may cause your work to be lost.

Note: The final question involves a video that is OPTIONAL: recording a video, uploading it to a streaming service (youtube, vimeo, etc) and including a working link for item #30 in this form. We strongly encourage you to do so although it’s NOT required. Remember to prepare the video before filling out the application.
