When it comes to learning foreign languages, communication and interaction is key for learner success. This session will touch on a few tools that will not only help you meet these Specific Review Standards but will help you build rapport and create community with your learners. The session will begin with an overview of the objectives and move into a discussion about the method’s attendees currently use for student engagement in their courses. Together, we will identify the purpose of Specific Review Standard 5.1, 6.1 and 6.2 and discuss how to address them in a foreign language class. After the discussion the presenter will introduce a few multimedia tools to demonstrate how they can be used to promote active learning and increase learner engagement. Attendees will be able to interact with these tools to see how they are set up from the instructor’s side and how learners would use them from their end. At the end of the session, attendees will have a discussion to work on a plan for incorporating multimedia in their own disciplines and share their thoughts with the whole group. Attendees will take away a planning matrix and list of resources for future use.
