EU projects Camelot & Euroversity disseminated at recent Dutch events

Had interesting opportunities to share information about the Euroversity and Camelot projects the past month. The first chance was at the annual conference of the Dutch national Association for language professionals 'Levende Talen'  

The event in Utrecht was 

well attended, as usual. I distributed flyers during breaks and was contacted by various interested teachers.


Marja Ritterfeld, a member of the German department,  was very much interested in 3Dvideo-based materials to support German literature highlights and invited me to run a workshop at the AEDE conference in February 2015.

 Also spoke with publishers (e.g. Hollwood, who also specialise in video for language learning), and some individual language teachers and colleagues also attending workshops in the teacher educators stream. 

With Rick de Graaff, professor of CLIL at Utrecht University I discussed possiblilities of involving U-teach master students as researchers and/or data partners in the Camelot CLIL pilot I am organising in the Netherlands.

The conference on virtual worlds organised by Fontys University of Applied Sciences offered a second opportunity for project dissemination. Find my and other presentations (mostly in Dutch) at this FB page

Furthermore, as I am coordinating an Erasmus Plus project 2015 application for some organisations I attended an information day on the topic for vocational education organised by the National Agency.

 

 

 

So here, too, project flyers were distributed. 

Finally, I also finished my video contribution to the Euroversity Network project the past month. 

On the other hand, unfortunately, I had to cancel presenting an accepted paper for the World Congress of Modern Languages 2015 in Niagara Falls, USA, due to commitments related to recent otherwise fortunate developments re grant allocation for our EU project iTILT follow up application. iTILT2 will focus on researching pedagogies for the orchestration of classroom technologies use (IWB, tablets, mobile phones, etc)
