INNOVATIVE LANGUAGE TEACHING AND LEARNING AT UNIVERSITY: ENHANCING THE LEARNING EXPERIENCE THROUGH STUDENT ENGAGEMENT
The School of Arts, Languages and Cultures in the University of Manchester organised the third annual conference in the ‘Innovative Language Teaching and Learning at University’ series. Following great success in Newcastle (2011) and Bristol (2012), this year’s one day event focussed on student engagement.
For this conference we welcomed papers on any past and present projects or case studies focusing on innovative ways to enhance student engagement in languages at university, with particular interest in the use of technology, Independent Language Learning, engaging students in the wider world (citizenship and sustainability) and Employability.
This series of conferences has been very successful in bringing together a wide range of colleagues involved in teaching language at university level, including teaching and research focussed academics. At Manchester we wish to maintain the momentum by continuing to promote the dissemination of good practice. With this blog we aim to foster a spirit of community and enquiry within the language teaching body and ultimately to enhance the university teaching and learning.
