Course description

Engage your language students more, expose them to authentic communication situations while fostering their 21st c. skills. This interactive live course will take you to discover Project-Based Language Learning (PBLL) for 5 weeks. PBLL fosters your students’ motivation and life skills through sustained inquiry, collaborative projects, and many opportunities for authentic communication in the target language. It integrates content, language, and skills and promotes the integrative use of the four main communicative skills: writing, reading, listening and speaking skills. It can significantly improve the willingness to speak, the authenticity of experience, and language skills. The course will culminate with your presentation of a draft PBLL project to get feedback and ideas from others.
