講演日時 Day and Time
Tuesdays, November 9th , 2021, 5:30-7:30pm
Webinar in English
This lecture is mainly intended for language educators, present and future. It can be of interest to practitioners as well as researchers who are keen on harnessing the potential of technology-enhanced language learning and its impact on language teaching. The lecture will open with a quick overview of the role that technology has always had on language learning and teaching, but most importantly how current technological advancements have affected the way languages are learned and taught. Finally, I will outline a constructivist approach showing how digital resources can encourage students to interact in the target language and to acquire metalinguistic awareness as well as cross-cultural competence.
