Last December, The Pathways Project team published two new “Let’s Chat!” pressbook collections for Arabic and Korean. Building upon the existing collection of French, German, and Spanish pressbooks, each title contains a collection of fully customizable conversation activities for novice and intermediate language courses.
Sara Bakari, a graduating Linguistics major, and Yurim Lee, a Intensive English Program student, led the final phase of each project in fall 2022 for Arabic and Korean, respectively. Pathways Project Student OER Editor and Lead Social Media Assistant, Sophie Campbell, Communications major/German minor/Public Relations certificate, and Student OER Editor, Shelby Cole, Chemistry major/Intermediate German certificate, edited and polished content for both Pressbooks.
Pathways Project co-directors Kelly Arispe and Amber Hoye regard the “Let’s Chat!” collection, “as further evidence of the power of open educational resources that are responsive and can adapt to diverse perspectives and ongoing needs from the communities that use these activities for teaching and learning.”Check out the “Let’s Chat!” pressbook collections and learn more about the Pathways Project on the Pathways Project website.
