Workshop: the use of ICT in support of language teaching and learning

The School of Modern Languages & Applied Linguistics is hosting a 2-day workshop on ‘the use of ICT in support of language teaching and learning’ (ICT-REV) taking place on the 22–23 May 2015 at UL.  

ICT-REV is an initiative carried out within the framework of a cooperation agreement between the European Centre for Modern Languages and the European Commission entitled Innovative Methodologies and Assessment in Language Learning ( http://ict-rev.ecml.at/en-us/ ).

The workshop is part of the initiative and is based on materials and tools published as a result of the project DEVELOPING ONLINE TEACHING SKILLS (DOTS). The project team has created a website (http://dots.ecml.at/ ), with a toolkit of activities that can be used for the teaching of languages with the help of digital technologies in online and blended contexts. These activities, which are available in different languages, target language professionals from diverse cultural and professional backgrounds who want to engage with online teaching or further develop their current practice. The focus of the workshop will be on participants’ training needs and on the adaptation of the available resources to their teaching contexts. 

The event, which will involve approximately 20 national and regional multipliers, is financed through the ECML-EU cooperation agreement. 

The project team and facilitators:
Sarah Heiser, Open University, United Kingdom
Ursula Stickler, Open University, United Kingdom
Martina Emke, Servicestelle Offene Hochschule Niedersachsen, Germany
