The theme of the NERALLT 2014 Conference is Technology for language education: Making need-based and pedagogy-driven choices. The conference will be held on October 23-24, 2014, at Brown University in Providence, RI, USA.
It’s great when faculty and language support personnel have the luxury of choosing the technology they need for particular pedagogical purposes, but it’s probably not a reality at most institutions. Whether for budgetary reasons, the need for technology to meet needs of multiple departments, or for other reasons, institutions often make choices with varying degrees of input from language programs. This conference will present and explore a number of approaches to meeting instructors’ and learners’ needs.
We will consider these issues from an educational standpoint, identifying the whys and hows of technology choices. We will also hear from those who have experienced some of these choices, giving us a sense of how results vary with the use of differing technologies.
