L2 Acquisition & Ed. Tech.

Second Language Acquisition (SLA) and Educational Technology
In this course we will study the relationship between second language acquisition (SLA) theory, foreign language (FL) instruction, and the use of educational technology. We will examine various aspects of first and second language learning/acquisition. SLA theories and research findings will then provide a framework to explore FL instruction and computer assisted learning (CALL) applications. Based on an experiential project development approach, this course will offer students opportunities to critically assess existing CALL applications and to design learning materials based on SLA current and relevant research. Class sessions are designed to be hands-on and interactive. (Not open to students who have taken LNGT/EDST 1004) 3 hrs. lect./disc.
