Revisiting CBI (Content-Based Instruction) (Akemi Morioka)
This presentation gives an overview of theories that support Content-Based Instruction (CBI) and some examples of its practices. By revisiting CBI, which has been around for a while now, Morioka would like participants to share the teaching philosophies and approaches we each embrace, and consequently, remind ourselves of our missions: what, how, and why we teach languages at our institutions.
Theory and Practice E-learning trends: Lessons from experts in four different countries (Keiko Sakui and Neil Cowie)
This presentation will describe a project in which the (non-techie)presenters interviewed experts in four countries (Japan, New Zealand, Singapore and the UK) about trends in using technology for language learning. A report on ideas learnt from these expert teachers include definitions of e-learning; advice about pedagogical approaches; a list of recommended e-learning tools; suggestions for institutions who wish to implement e-learning programs and teacher training; and, a discussion of student reactions to e-learning.
