Toyohashi JALT:

Developing a Curriculum-Enhancing Website

Date: Sunday, November 16th, 2008 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: James Venema and Bruce McCaughan

This presentation will look at efforts to use a website to enhance curriculum. Specifically, the following needs were identified:
* An online database which would allow for the sharing of students' example sentences in a vocabulary course with future students in the same course.
* Online access of locally developed listening materials for a listening and speaking course.
* Online access of administrative and curricular files, for teachers as well as students, for all the courses in the language program.
In this presentation we will briefly outline the language program and demonstrate how the NWU curriculum website addresses specific program needs, those of teachers and students. We will also briefly outline some technical issues in developing the website and address any queries along that line that members of the audience might have. The audience will be encouraged to reflect on and contribute ideas on how websites can be incorporated into programs to enhance teaching and learning.
