TITLE : Enquiry-based learning for languages
DATE : 26 June 2009
VENUE : University of Durham - Elvet Riverside room 206 and 207
Enquiry-Based Learning for teaching languages has only recently been applied to language learning. However, a growing interest for this method has appeared in the past few years among language tutors in British universities. After the success of the EBL in languages conference held at CEEBL (Centre for Excellence in Enquiry Based Learning), Manchester in September 2008, it clearly appears that there is a need for further investigation and diffusion of knowledge about EBL. We would like to offer a frame for reflection on this method through the presentation of case studies and practical sessions where participants will be able to discuss EBL issues and also exchange ideas and experience. To this will be added the opportunity to gain advice to create one’s own EBL project, for instance with the creation of scenario. We would like to offer sessions on the creation of tasks for the residence abroad, for interdisciplinary projects, teaching grammar, peer assisted learning, specialized language course (business and medical).
