Kris van den Branden keynote: Task design and CALL conference

Kris van den Branden keynote: Task design and CALL conference | TELT | Scoop.it

What can CALL learn from task-based language teaching? This intriguing question (posted on the conference website) will be the starting point for my presentation. Using authentic examples, I will critically discuss the principles and practice of task-based language teaching (TBLT), which has become the dominant approach to second language teaching in many countries (at least in governmental and school policy papers). What basically is a task? And why do so many applied linguists claim language learning can be enhanced by inviting students to perform functional, meaningful tasks? How can teachers and task designers integrate a focus on form in meaningful tasks? What is the role of the teacher in task-based language teacher? And what kinds of revolutionary, exciting perspectives does the integration of modern technology in task-based language teaching have to offer to language teachers and learners alike? I will provide answers to these questions, based on the available research into the practice of task-based design and task-based teaching as it takes place in authentic classrooms around the world. These answers will pave the way for an exploration of the optimal integration of CALL and TBLT.

iTILT 2: developing effective teaching and learning of second languages with a range of new and emerging interactive technologies (such as iPads, tablet PCs, learner response systems, and videoconferencing software) both independently and in combination.


The data collection/professional development cycle will include extensive teacher development involving researcher input and peer collaboration using face-to-face and online spaces, followed by two iterations of classroom filming and participant interviews. The data collected will be integrated into an extended version of the existing iTILT website, and involve new professional development e-resources for pre-service and in-service language teachers and teacher educators.

Teacher-researchers in action

Opening articles by Burns, Allwright and Smith; case studies from Turkey.

 

Allwright says:

 

1. That ‘research’ and ‘development’ are both essentially about getting understanding, so teacher-research for teacher development needs to be centred on working to understand, rather than on finding immediate solutions to practical classroom problems.

2. That learners need (and want) to understand at least as much as teachers do. That they do not think they get much help from teachers in this. And that our learners deserve all the help we can provide for them to develop their understandings.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Looks like an interesting collection
