This year, the pre-SASLI workshop, held at the University of Madison, WI, was divided into two separate but complimentary sessions. The first session, Blending Content for South Asian Language Pedagogy, led by A. Sean Pue and Manan Ahmed focused on providing the SASLI teachers an overview of emerging technologies which combine online and off-line tools for language pedagogy. This session was held on Monday and Tuesday. The next three days were taken by the session, Finding and Organizing Content for Student Proficiency, led by Carl Falsgraf and Krystal Sundstrom, and focused on introducing the conceptual framework and usage of LinguaFolio Online – a tool which can help with student assessment and evaluation.
