Location: Hellems 152

Online fan fiction, high speed travel, DJing, and texting all have one thing in common: They are changing the way some of us think about language.

Using Technology to Energize Task-Based Teaching
Thursday April 16th from 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM
Location: Hellems 152
Instructor: Mark Knowles
Task-based language learning (TBLT) hit the textbook stands for the first time in the 1980s. The advantages of this language learning approach are that tasks involve a primary of focus on meaning, tasks contain some kind of gap that pressures students to fill in, TBLT gives participants a variety of choices as far to the linguistic resources needed to complete the task, and tasks have clearly defined, non-linguistic outcomes. While the approach offers much promise, it does take some effort to come up curricula and materials for D2L-delivery, or hybrid and/or online learning. We'll look at some ways technology might help address the needs of teachers who want to do more with TBLT.
