2023 Edition - Integrating digital technologies in languages classes

Every year, the CUEF of the University of Perpignan Via Domitia organises a training for French as a Foreign Language teachers. This year, the training will take place in July 2022, from the 10th to the 23th.

We are pleased to offer a training made of different workshops to help you improve your teaching and pedagogy and discover new resources for your classes that could correspond to any type of public you may be teaching to.

For two weeks, we will offer you an overview of innovating methods to adopt for your language classes.

This training allows teachers to diversify their pedagogy: differentiated pedagogy, student autonomy, emulation in the classroom, there are various advantages to get started.


Module 1
Hybridise teaching to promote learnings: script, develop and create your classes content – 8hours
Presented by Morgane ALMERGE, pedagogical engineer in the University of Perpignan and Jorys FABRYKA, multimedia production in the University of Perpignan

Hybridisation is a teaching method which, under certain conditions, makes it possible to improve student learning. Apart from any "pandemic" type of constraint, it is a solution that makes it possible to enrich one's course and to offer students high-level resources and activities at a distance that are sometimes difficult to mobilise in the classroom. This training course proposes to address the different aspects of hybridization and its implementation from the point of view of student learning by examining the advantages and disadvantages inherent to this type of modality. The respect of the pedagogical alignment during the scripting process is crucial to obtain a successful hybridization and the training will present in detail the different steps of this process.

Module 2
From cyberspace to the classroom: integrating digital technology into the French language course for teenagers - 12 hours distance learning
Presented by Fanny PIAT, FLE trainer and author of educational manuals Editions Maison des Langues

Can we teach teenagers without screens? Tablets, smartphones, blogs, social networks or online games, the digital tools and resources used to communicate with their entourage abound in the lives of adolescents. As a result, information and communication technologies (ICT) are becoming part of the pedagogical habits of FLE teachers and digital resources are increasingly supporting teaching practices. In this context, the progressive development of a digital culture among teachers remains a crucial point in the deployment of these new pedagogical uses. Why integrate digital technology, with what, how and when? This module aims to develop the skills needed to integrate innovative techniques and design learning activities that integrate digital technology into an online or classroom course. Beyond the motivational aspect, we will see that by integrating digital technology into our traditional practices, it can greatly facilitate the implementation and reinforce the beneficial effects of differentiated pedagogy, learner autonomy and the action-oriented approach in an FLE course for adolescents.

Module 3
Boosting your class with serious digital games - 12 hours of distance learning
Presented by Coralie Segot, FLE trainer, creator of pedagogical content, Institut Français de Bilbao

"Ludification", "gamification", "serious games", these are new concepts that are gaining in popularity in the classroom. So, when these are adapted to the digital context, they offer us an infinite number of possibilities to vary and energise our teaching practices! This module aims to address the specificities of serious games but also their design. Free of charge and available to all, Gé is presented as the new essential tool for teaching. Between presentation and interactivity, we will discover its multiple facets.

Module 4
Interactive teaching in FLE courses - 4 hours in class
Presented by Christopher RIUS, Audiovisual technician and trainer at the University of Perpignan

Tools for "animating" courses and their usefulness: whiteboards (Zoom or MiRO), online questionnaires (Kahoot), management of a video capsule as an input to the course, group work via Zoom and return to the plenary session, management of oral information on a shared document (luminous annotations, appearance of elements of animated slideshows, etc.), management of distant students...

Module 5
Digital environments and didactic innovation: what relationship? – 12 hours
Presented by Christian Puren, Professor at the Jean Monnet University of Saint-Etienne

In the first part, I will present the very different ways in which these relationships are conceived, depending on the paradigm in which one is situated: technological determinism, social determinism, disciplinary determinism, or convergence/divergence. The one that seems to have worked best throughout history is that of convergence: for there to be real innovation in the classroom, technological innovation must 'converge' (coincide with, meet) didactic innovation. There are indeed cases of technological innovations that have caused didactic regressions. In a second part, I will give as an illustration of this convergence/divergence paradigm a historical example of maximum divergence - between language laboratories and the communicative approach in the 1970s and 1980s - and two historical examples of maximum convergence - between the structuring exercises of the audio-oral and audiovisual methodologies in the 1960s; between the action-oriented perspective and the digital and Internet environments since the 2000s. In a third part, I will question the relationship between digital innovation and 'sustainable change', which implies a change in pedagogical practices that is both widespread and sustainable, indicating the steps to be taken to achieve this.
