  • [MCEL2041] [6 ECTS] Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL)
    As computers have become more and more integrated into our daily lives it is vital for language teachers to have some understanding of their role in language instruction. Without this understanding, it is difficult to make sound judgments about how to integrate computers into language classes in order to make student learning more engaging, efficient, and effective. It is hoped that this course will serve as a foundation for teachers interested in applying technology to the language learning classroom and beyond. The course introduces the current theories and practices of Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL). Course topics include the history and principles of CALL, software evaluation, the design and development of Web-based language courses, computer-mediated communication, Hyper media and corpus for language teaching. In addition, the use of computers in the development of particular language skills in the area of reading, writing, and speech communication/pronunciation will be introduced. The course also examines the current language learning theories that underline CALL applications.
