The Language Learning Center is hosting the semi-annual Technology Discussion Forum for Foreign Language Faculty. This discussion forum will include presentations by foreign language faculty and discussion of pedagogical and technological issues. I am hoping that this discussion forum will allow faculty members to share their experiences and thoughts, and develop some new ideas for the next semester. The focus of this forum is the use of technology in foreign language teaching, but all interested faculty are welcome to attend.
Date: Tuesday, December 19th. 2006
Time: 10:00am ~11:30pm (Breakfast items will be available at 9:30am)
Place: Language Learning Center, Stokes 205
The presentations will include:
- Shizhe Huang, Assoc Prof Chinese & Ling CVStarr Professor of Asian Studies & Changchun Zhang, Instructor in Chinese, “Pronunciation exercises using Audacity and Blackboard Assignment tool”
