CEDAR Language Resource Center

"Access through innovation."

Serving the nation through the creation of leading-edge language education materials

The Curricular Enhancement, Development, Access, and Research Language Resource Center (CEDAR LRC) is a Title VI LRC funded by the United States Department of Education, established in the fall of 2022. The CEDAR LRC focuses on the provision, enhancement, and evaluation of language curriculum materials that create transformative experiences for learners and educators alike. The CEDAR LRC both develops and researches the impact of leading-edge curricular materials for language learners from kindergarten through postsecondary levels. Its four focal areas are virtual reality (VR) for curricular design, the development of inclusive materials, community and institutional partnerships, and theory-to-practice research. Curricular materials at the CEDAR LRC will all be publicly available as open educational resources (OERs).
