The high quality of the presentations that we have at the iMoot is what keeps both presenters and attendees coming back year after year. If you are new to presenting at an iMoot - don't worry, you'll get help and guidance from the team to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Sessions for the iMoot are to be a maximum of 45 minutes long including question time.

If you can not see the 'Add Entry' tab, either you haven't set up an account on the site, or the call for presentations has closed.

Andy Chaplin

Teaching foreign languages with Moodle

Content Type: Online Teaching and Course Creation

Language: English

Description of Presentation

This session will look at a range off issues affecting course development and teaching in the area of foreign languages.  First there will be an introduction to design issues that are particular to teaching languages, and a presentation of some tweaks that can be made without having to change stock Moodle.

The second part of the session will look at plugins and embeddable tools which can be used effectively to increase both learner satisfaction and progress.  This will include activities that are language-focused, and adapting other standard Moodle activities to improve the language learner experience.

The examples in the presentation will be taken from teaching English as a foreign language, but the information applies to teaching any foreign language.

The presentation will be accompanied by two Moodle courses - one will be available during iMoot, which will demonstrate some of the elements from the presentation, while the other will be available after the conference and will give participants the chance to examine and practise with some of the plugins which are not available on the iMoot site.  The follow-up course is obviously completely free of charge.  In both cases, the forum will allow teachers and course creators to learn from each other and share ideas to get the best out of Moodle.
