Language Pedagogy in the Online Classroom
What is the future of second-language acquisition in the online learning environment? How can educators leverage pre-existing technologies to duplicate and improve upon tried and true strategies of second language development pedagogy? What new technologies have been most helpful in this transition to online second-language teaching? What kinds of tools does the Penn Language Center offer for graduate students looking to improve their online teaching, both for second-language courses and beyond? This workshop will answer these theoretical and practical questions through a collaborative and participant-driven exploration of language pedagogy, with an emphasis on online teaching, informed by the experiences of two veteran language pedagogues. No previous language teaching experience necessary.
