with Eleni Miltsakaki, Ph.D.

and Christina Frei, Ph.D.
Academic Director, Penn Language Center
WebQuests are inquiry-based projects that help students develop critical thinking and research skills through finding, discussing, analyzing, and synthesizing information found on the web.
This hands-on workshop will explore WebQuests, introduce users to their basic design principles, discuss ways of integrating them in foreign language instruction, and situate the WebQuest activities within the ACTFL themes for world languages.
