Acknowledgments

This project would not have been possible without the tremendous support of Regina Gong, the Open Educational Resources (OER) & Student Success Librarian at the Michigan State University Libraries. We are grateful for her dedication to the quality of education that our students deserve. The training she provided for us within the Open Pedagogy Learning Community continued to inform and guide us in the production of this volume in the most accessible format. Our sincere gratitude goes for Dr. Camelia Suleiman, associate professor at the Linguistics and Languages department at Michigan State University. She has led the Arabic Program from 2012-2020. She was so dedicated to our curriculum development efforts and led workshops and focus meetings to put us on the right track and get us started with our project.  We are thankful for the Center for Language Teaching Advancement (CeLTA) whose staff facilitated our access to funding resources and online training that helped shape out the outcome of this project. We extend our thanks to the dedicated editing team, led by Joshua Newman, who put a great effort into the production and accessibility of the book. We are grateful to our colleagues in the Department of Linguistics and Languages at Michigan State University for recognizing the value of our project as a model for other languages. We thank Dr. Yen-Hwei Lin, the department chair, who supported the project and always encouraged us to revolutionize the curricula we offer in our programs. We are finally thankful for our students who inspired us to create this resource as their needs and interests keep pushing us to do more to meet their expectations. As is the way of all things digital, collaboration is at the heart of the project and we are thankful for the many people who helped make this possible.
