From 2014 to 2017, the TELL Collab brought together world language educators to explore, model, and share effective language learning practices identified by the TELL Framework. The two day professional learning experience included a mixture of collaborative sessions, presentations and resource sharing for both teachers and administrators. Teachers received help identifying their own professional learning goals and learned strategies for meeting their goals. Administrators received guidance on how to use the TELL Framework with their teachers.

The TELL Project

The mission of the Teacher Effectiveness for Language Learning (TELL) Project is to define what effective language teachers do and facilitate their growth to prepare for, advance and support language learning.


The Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (COERLL) is a National Foreign Language Resource Center whose mission is to develop and share open educational resources and practices for language education.


Professionals in Education Advancing Research and Language Learning (PEARLL) is a National Foreign Language Resource Center founded in 2018, whose mission is to create a common vision for high-quality world language learning and develop new models of professional development and support materials for language educators. PEARLL now oversees the TELL Project, along with many other programs.
