As screens play a growing part in our daily communication, as meeting possilbities have increased with social networks, how shall we prompt and train our teachers to take advantage of the potential of these tools and appliations in their language classrooms and beyond? Some of questions will be discussed throughout the webinar session.
Training for new teachers:
- How shall we connect this new type of training to the more traditional skills which are also still required and relevant?
- How much information and communication technology (ICT) should be an integral part of language teachers’ training and what are our pedagogical aims?
Continuing education for current teachers (“in-service” training):
- How can we create a love for the integration of technology?
- What are the new skills teachers need to learn to feel comfortable about technology choices for language learning and teaching?
- Can continuing education induce changes in practice?
- Are training courses that focus solely on the technological aspect of tools and applications useful?
An interactive debate with four leading researchers in the field of language teacher training will address insightful answers to these questions drawn by their own specific professional experiences.
The invited speakers:
Christine Develotte, ENS de Lyon-Ifé , France
Mirjam Hauck, Open University, UK
Melinda Dooly, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona ,Spain
