Open Educational Resources in Modern Languages

Open Educational Resources in Modern Languages | MFL languages | Scoop.it

On 20th September, the School of Modern Languages at the University of Bristol is hosting a one-day conference on teaching and learning languages through the use of online open educational resources (OERs). I am lucky to have been invited as a keynote speaker to this event and I’m really looking forward to attending and sharing my experiences of how language teachers have engaged with OERs and the benefits associated with doing so. Open educational practice is becoming a more familiar part of our work as teachers, and yet risks, challenges and questions remain. I hope to encourage attendees to consider and reconsider where they stand in relation to OERs and OEP – and to be challenged myself in turn (despite being a self-confessed OER-evangelist)!

 

The event will include presentations on important work by language educators experimenting with open educational practice which I’m sure will stimulate lots of discussion and encourage further innovation in language teaching and learning. It is going to be a fantastic day – and I hope to see you there! http://www.bristol.ac.uk/arts/birtha/events/open/
