Conference: The Role of Extracurricular Activities in Language Teaching
|Starts:||1 Jun 2018|
|Ends:||1 Jun 2018|
|What is it:||Conferences|
|Organiser:||School of Arts, Languages and Cultures|
“Extracurricular work in foreign languages comes frequently under the initiative of language tutors and is often unrecognised. Considering the paramount contribution of extracurricular activities to student satisfaction, and the increasing attention it is receiving from both practitioners and scholars, this conference aims to foster a discussion concerning this informal and yet key part of the language learning experience and its impact on students’ language/culture acquisition, their motivation, and their job skills and competencies.
Our aim is to create a forum for discussion and for sharing teaching and learning experiences with colleagues passionate about going the extra mile. We hope that throughout the various presentations and workshops, modern languages higher education professionals will find opportunities for peer learning, network building, and, most of all, will find a place where work in the background becomes the foreground.”
