UK LINGUA – Multilingual Language Learning and Teaching Colloquium

UK LINGUA – Multilingual Language Learning and Teaching Colloquium

UK Lingua 2018 (21 and 22 of April 2018)

CONFERENCE THEME : Engaging Students

How do we engage students?
That is - How do we involve them actively in their language learning? How do we lead them into being language learners?

Engaging students can imply a form of active learning where students are actively, reflectively or experientially involved in their learning process. A direct involvement in their own learning raises students' intrinsic motivation and should clear enhances the student experience.

“I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand” (Confucius)

This type of learner-centred, rather than teacher-centred learning, with a focus on what students do, rather than on what is being done to them, includes a great variety of language learning and teaching methodologies at all levels (from primary school to university) such as technology-based, task-based, project-based, groupwork learning, flipped learning and peer-teaching, as well as learning through play, culture, literature and many more.

The focus of UK Lingua 2018 will be “Engaging Students”, understood in the widest sense of the term, and we invite the submission of papers on this and associated aspects of MFL learning and teaching.
