Abstract:The focus of this chapter is foundational foreign language teaching and learning
that integrates content and language study in a hybrid environment. It offers a detailed
description of how the open-access, web-based Acceso project implements
an approach to intermediate-level Spanish study, consonant with recent discussions
of integrated language and content instruction at all levels of instruction
by means of a broad range of computer-assisted language learning applications.
The chapter also argues for a characterization of Acceso’s content as “hybrid” with
respect both to its collaborative development and maintenance and to how student
engagement of this content is facilitated inside and outside of the classroom.
Finally, the chapter discusses the benefits and challenges of developing and implementing
such a project from a language program director’s perspective, as well as
directions for its future.
