InterCom is a weekly email digest that offers just-in-time information in easy-to-digest portions. It is customizable by target language, level, and content area (such as curriculum, professional development, or assessment), so you receive only the information that matters to you.

Our editor monitors professional online communications such as listservs, blogs, and organizational websites to find the most relevant, useful information and resources for language professionals.

Each InterCom issue includes:

  • Topic of the Week: a brief introduction to an issue relevant to language teaching and learning
  • Activity of the Week: a classroom-ready activity exemplifying the week’s topic
  • Spotlight: a highlight of Title VI Language Resource Center activities
  • Curated Resources: links to carefully selected publications, language-specific resources, and professional development opportunities

The Center for Applied Second Language Studies (CASLS) at the University of Oregon offers InterCom free of charge, thanks to a Title VI Language Resource Center grant. CASLS fosters innovation by providing research-based solutions to materials creation, implementation, and evaluation and assessment.
