Remote learning and teaching can make any teacher feel isolated. When you are the only world language teacher in your program, though, returning to “normal” does not mean better collaboration and supervision. It just means continuing to plan curriculum, recruit students, and manage other departmental duties alone. Through reflective case studies, we will highlight the challenges of teaching for proficiency in a department of one but also offer strategies, resources, and opportunities to connect.
