CANCELLED: Design thinking and/in L2 learning

Monday, April 27, 2020 at 4:30pm to 6:00pm

Building 2, 2-105
182 MEMORIAL DR, Cambridge, MA 02139

Talk by Sébastien Dubreil, Teaching Professor of French and Francophone Studies, Second Language Acquisition and Technology-Enhanced Learning, Carnegie Mellon University.

This presentation will engage the notion of design and design thinking to envision how it can be applied to L2 instruction and, more broadly, to L2 learning. In English, design is both a process and a product. We will take this double meaning of the word as a point of departure to examine how it can be applied to approaching L2 students and course design, as well as to students’ projects. Examples will be taken from one undergraduate course, a multi-year project (the App Farm), and teacher training, with a focus on the use of games.
