TELLConsult at EUROCALL 2011

on Wed, 08/31/2011 - 13:25

Facilitated by the iTILT project I will represent TELLConsult at EUROCALL 2011 Conference for the poster presentation of the iTILT project on the use of Interactive Whiteboards in Language Education. Nottingham University hosts the conference on its Jubilee Campus. 

Having registered and explored the facilities I am excited about sharing the next few days with some 250 colleagues, especially since the conference programme book promises lots of interesting content.
A quick scan - with my current and two upcoming EU project commitments (SMART_VET and EUROversity)  in mind - shows that the top 3 of hot topics are: 1) Computer Mediated Communication in general and using 3D platforms and mobile devices in particular 2) Moodle for language learning and teaching 3) Task-based language learning. 

Apparently it is still early days for reports on research and practice related to IWB use as only one paper on this topic will be presented  (which, BTW, also underlines iTILT's project rationale!). If present at the conference check out the poster materials. 

For a brief report on the session see this blogpost at the iTILT project site
