2021 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 2021, from the 4th to the 16th.

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 enables the teachers to diversify their pedagogy using digital tools. Differentiated instruction, students’ autonomy, competitive classes, the advantages are varied to get into the digital.

Module 1
Hybridise teaching to promote learnings: script, develop and create your classes content – 8hours on-site

Presented by Morgane ALMERGE, pedagogical engineer in the University of Perpignan and Jorys FABRYKA, multimedia production in the University of Perpignan

The current health crisis has shaken up our teaching habits and forces us think back on them to participate in the success of the students, who are not used to these new ways of learning. Hybrid teaching perfectly fitted for the situation. Indeed, as an appropriate solution, it can constitute an effective plan that would favour and deal with students’ learning in depth. Unlike a binary choice between in-class learning and online learning, it allows giving more time to learnings, resources, and interactions*. It is distinguished by “an opened combination of learning activities may they be in-class, in real time or online, in a synchronous or asynchronous mode” (APOP, 2012)**. Turning teaching into a hybrid teaching leads to the development of new digital and pedagogical skills for the teachers: staging classes (define the objectives, the choice of learning methods, the choice of assessment and content, the choice of the interactions), developing the classes on digital platforms (examples, demos, classes schemes), creating contents: recording videos with a personal computer.

Module 2
Interactive teachings in a FFL class – 4 hours on-site

Presented by Christopher RIUS, audio-visual technician and trainer in the University of Perpignan

Description soon to be published

Module 3
Galvanise classes with serious digital games – 12 hours online

Presented by Coralie Segot, FFL trainer, pedagogical content designer, French Institute of Bilbao

“Gamification” and “serious games” are new concepts becoming popular in classrooms. So, when these concepts are adapted to a digital context, they offer a wide possibilities to galvanise our pedagogies! This module will deal with the specificity of serious games but also with their creation. Free and available to everyone, they aremade up as a new must-have tool for teaching. Between presentation and interactivity, we will participate in the discovering of its multiple facets.

Module 4
Design creative and collective writing workshops through digital technology – 12 hours online

Presented by Pierre SALAM, head of Maison des Langues in Le Mans University

Through this module, we will focus on innovative techniques to strengthen writing skills in comprehension, expression or interaction. To do so, we will go back on the spiral technique of writing, read-write-reread-rewrite, from Oriol-Boyer (2013), by adapting it to the digital field. With these tools, tutors can transform the isolated work of writing into a shared action implying the entire class. Focusing on experiences led in 2013 in Le Mans University, we will review different online writing tools as feedbacks, forums, wikis, Drives and pads, in order to produce creative works such as articles, tales, short stories or novels written by more than one hand. We will deal with follow-up tools, such as trello, and the activity leader role, between motivation and correction. During this module, the participants will also take part in a collective writing experience defined in teams.
