The creation of a digital open educational resource for German language and culture. The applicants aim to produce an alternative to traditional textbooks by developing an interactive and immersive environment for language and culture that makes use of videos and interviews with native and near-native German speakers.

We seek a Level II grant to complete Grenzenlos Deutsch, an online, open-access curriculum for introductory German language and culture courses that creates an inclusive and interactive learning experience. The curriculum, started by Professors Brigetta (Britt) Abel and Amy Young during their sabbatical leaves in the fall of 2016, is intended as a no-cost alternative to current traditional textbooks in the field. Funding will be used primarily for the formation of a Collaborative Working Group of German faculty to assemble for further development and completion this full-year curriculum, which mixes materials from real-world, contemporary communication scenarios, multimedia content, and online learning activities. Firmly rooted in humanities, including language and culture, this curriculum will be openly available to German Studies teachers and learners worldwide, and our project will present a viable alternative to traditional textbooks across humanities fields.
