When it comes to language learning, technology can provide experiences that the typical college classroom just can’t match. Students can interact with native speakers. Content can be modified for a student’s learning style. Instruction can occur at the students’ own pace.
This is a big undertaking for an institution, and it helps to gain some insight from people who have been there before. Let Rosetta Stone and experienced language learning instructors from Humboldt State University in California help to show you the way.
Rosetta Stone is offering a webinar entitled “Personalized Language Learning with Technology – Best Practices from the Trenches”, featuring Russell Gaskell, World Languages and Culture Lab Director for Humboldt State University, and Matthew Dean, Associate Professor of Spanish for Humboldt State University. Humboldt has taken the bold step to use a blended-learning lab as a co-requisite to credit-bearing coursework.
The webinar will take place on Friday, February 6th at 3:00 p.m. EDT.
The presenters will discuss the instructional design elements being used for extended learning, skill development, and practice outside of the classroom, as well as:
- How Humboldt’s integrated technology solution has complemented—not replaced—classroom instruction
- How Humboldt’s Rosetta Stone-powered solution provides individualized instruction for each student
- The benefits the students have seen from the blended-learning program
- Best practices for integrating technology into language learning
Friday, February 6th, you will take away from the 50-minute webinar session a deeper understanding of what is involved in technology-based language learning at the post-secondary level, as well as the tools and experience needed to create such a program at your school.
