Innovative language teaching and learning at university: enhancing participation and collaboration

Innovative language teaching and learning at university: enhancing participation and collaboration | TELT | Scoop.it
Cecilia Goria, Oranna Speicher, Sascha Stollhans.

 

In his foreword, Zoltan Dornyei says:

 

As its title suggests, Innovative language teaching and learning at university: enhancing participation and collaboration presents a principled attempt to address the issue of how L2 instruction at university level can meet  such  heightened  demands.  The  Editors  served  as  the  organisers  of  a successful conference at the School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies at The University of Nottingham, ‘InnoConf 2015’ where the rich programme specifically focused on various novel ways of exploring the benefits of state-
of-the-art instructional approaches,such as the use of technology and the Internet, content-based language learning, the development of intercultural communicative competence/awareness, different study-abroad schemes and field trips, as well as utilising certain key psychological processes underlying institutional learning such as learner autonomy and motivation. The current volume offers a good selection of papers representing three main themes: online
collaboration, digital tools in online environments and teaching that goes beyond the boundaries of the language classroom.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Looks like an interesting read; open access

Colloque creation and innovation in foreign language learning and teaching

La didactique des langues (DDL) a vu se développer au cours des dernières décennies des recherches portant sur la créativité dans le processus d’enseignement/apprentissage. Parallèlement, du fait surtout de l’évolution des technologies, on a vu également se multiplier les travaux liés à l’innovation pédagogique tant dans le domaine de la conception des dispositifs d’apprentissage que dans celui de leur évaluation. Mais les liens qui unissent les deux concepts, créativité et innovation, s’ils paraissent évidents aux pédagogues - la créativité serait le moteur et l’innovation le résultat -, n’ont pas été suffisamment explorés scientifiquement. Aussi, ce colloque invite-il à réfléchir sur ces questions dans une perspective interdisciplinaire en sciences humaines et sociales. En effet, à côté de nos collègues spécialistes en didactique des langues, nous serions heureux/ses d’accueillir des philosophes, des historien.ne.s, des sociologues de la technique, des spécialistes de l’éducation, de l’analyse du langage, des psychologues, la liste n’est pas exhaustive, susceptibles d’aider les didacticien.ne.s de langues à enrichir leurs problématiques ou méthodes afin de mieux cerner les relations entre créativité et innovation. Les propositions de communication pourront faire état de réflexions théoriques, que ce soit sur chaque concept séparément ou sur la relation entre les deux construits, ou bien de recherches de terrain. Quel que soit le format des propositions, elles doivent s’inscrire dans la perspective de l’enseignement/apprentissage des langues étrangères.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Le colloque se tiendra à Toulouse les 11 et 12 décembre 2015 (en modes présentiel et virtuel, étudiants en présentiel uniquement).

Learning with digital technologies: US 0ffice of Ed Tech 2016

Technology can be a powerful tool for transforming learning. It can help affirm and advance relationships between educators and students, reinvent our approaches to learning and collaboration, shrink long-standing equity and accessibility gaps, and adapt learning experiences to meet the needs of all learners.
 
Our schools, community colleges, and universities should be incubators of exploration and invention. Educators should be collaborators in learning, seeking new knowledge and constantly acquiring new skills alongside their students. Education leaders should set a vision for creatinglearning experiences that provide the right tools and supports for all learners to thrive.However, to realize fully the benefits of technology in our education system and provideauthentic learning experiences, educators need to use technology effectively in their practice.
 
Furthermore, education stakeholders should commit to working together to use technology to improve American education. These stakeholders include leaders; teachers, faculty, and other educators; researchers; policymakers; funders; technology developers; community members and organizations; and learners and their families
