International Conference on Intercultural Learning in the Digital Age: Building up Telecollaborative Networks
Nov

to Nov 9

International Conference on Intercultural Learning in the Digital Age: Building up Telecollaborative Networks

Universitat de València, November 7- 9 2019

ABOUT

The theme of Intercultural Learning in the Digital Age covers areas including Telecollaboration or Virtual Exchange and Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC), intercultural communication, education for sustainable development, gamification, teacher education and professional development, open education, task design, digital literacies, digital games-based and problem-based learning, mobile-assisted learning, MOOC design and practice, open educational resources and practices, blended learning models, creative and innovative pedagogy, and student engagement.

The Intercultural Learning in the Digital Age international conference and the  VI Valencian Workshop on Computer-Assisted Language Learning: Gamification & Communicative Competence will discuss and explore how educational theories and practices are driving, responding to and facilitating intercultural communication and learning in the current digital age. Topics discussed will include: How are our educational systems changing in our current context of liquid modernity (Bauman, 2007), globalisation and massive migratory movements across the globe? How are educators responding to the constant mobility and changes in relationships and identities within our highly complex societies? How can we cross global boundaries while promoting mutual understanding and critical values in the classroom?  What will education and teaching be like once normalisation (Bax, 2002) of ICT has been fully achieved? How will this digital immersion transform the ways and environments in which intercultural communication and learning take place? How can gamification, fan fiction, etc. disclose new avenues to enhance intercultural communication and learner collaboration?

9th Cambridge Conference on Language Endangerment - Language Revitalisation: New speakers, new challenges, new linguistic forms

The main aim of language revitalisation is to set an endangered language back ‘on its feet’. Revitalisation strategies may be developed and implemented by linguists, the State, language activists and the speakers themselves. However, these strategies, which attempt to make the endangered language an attractive and useful resource for modern users, may result in the transformation of the endangered language rather than restoring it to its old self. 

Venue

University of Cambridge

Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road, Cambridge CB3 9DT

Information

The standard fee is £45 with a reduced fee of £30 for students (proof of student status will need to be presented). This includes lunches and refreshments at the conference and a wine reception.
