Developing and integrating teacher competences in language acquisition, pedagogy and technology

My paper on "Developing and integrating teacher competences in language acquisition, pedagogy and technology."  (Actes du colloque FICEL sur l'évolution et professionalisation des enseignants de langues)

 

The paper discusses key competences required for teaching languages with technology, and concludes with examples of projects combining research, pedagogy and technology including:

 

"the EU lifelong learning project iTILT, Interactive Technologies in Language Teaching (Whyte, Cutrim Schmid & van Hazebrouck, 2011). In this project, language researchers and teacher trainers offer professional development in the use of the interactive whiteboard (IWB) to practising language teachers with learners at all levels. After initial training, class sessions at the board are filmed, and followed by debriefing sessions with both teachers and learners. Short video clips of selected lesson episodes are then presented on the project website together with lesson plans, lesson files, and teacher and learner commentary to aid other teachers in using the IWB for language teaching. The project website also includes a variety of related resources and dissemination tools, and as teacher training and data collection proceed, the project partners inform their networks of developments via blogs and social media. Thus teaching, training and research are closely interrelated as the project teachers develop their digital  and pedagogical skills, the researchers observe classroom interaction and teacher development, and trainers create resources for future professional development using feedback from the project teachers."

 

The iTILT website (http://itilt.eu) will soon go live, allowing language teachers and teacher educators access to this free open educational resource on the interactive whiteboard (IWB) in communicative language teaching.

A comparable-corpus based approach to the expression of obligation across English and French
Shona Whyte's insight:
Crosslinguistic comparison of obligation in FR (falloir, devoir) and EN (must) show similar, atypical use in political speeches, unlike diversified corpus comparison.

CALL Your Data – XIXth International CALL Research Conference, Bruges, 4-6 July 2018

The International CALL Research conferences focus on the role of technology in the language-learning and teaching process. The XIXth edition will take place in Bruges (Belgium) from 4 to 6 July 2018 and will explore the issue of Open Data, Information and Content. We define ‘Open’ as incorporating the qualities of being accessible, exchangeable, sustainable, reusable and useful. Every CALL practitioner and researcher is confronted on a daily basis with the challenges and issues associated with the use of Data, sometimes massive amounts of it, where Data can become Information and/or Content depending on our goals.

Plurilingual expatriate teachers ’ in Higher Education : roles and impacts

Under the label ‘international’, synonymous with modernity and attractiveness, English, often portrayed as ‘the language of internationalization’ . The aim of this special issue is to pay a closer look not only on the policy of English as academia lingua franca , but also on other linguistic contexts and constellations in the following scenarios:
- teachers whose first language is the institutional/local langue and teach in another language;
- teachers whose first language is not the institutional/local language teach in the institutional/local language;
- teachers whose first language is not the institutional/local language teach in another language .

Concise Encyclopedia of Educational Linguistics

The notion of ‘ interlanguage ’ has been central to the development of the field of research on second- language acquisition (SLA) and continues to exert a strong influence on both the development of SLA theory and the nature of the central issues in that field.
Shona Whyte's insight:
First published in 1999, this article relies on references to research published in the 1970s and 1980s
