  • Foster enquiry into issues around integration of new technologies in the field of foreign language education
  • Develop the capacity to evaluate new technologies in foreign language for different purposes and for different stakeholders
Expected learning outcomes
On completion of this topic you will be expected to be able to:

  1. Demonstrate knowledge about theories and research relevant for application of a range of new technologies for foreign language teaching and learning
  2. Critically examine current literature to determine sound e-pedagogy in foreign language teaching practice
  3. Evaluate the use of selected new technology in foreign language teaching in general and its application in a specific educational context to determine how technology can benefit student learning outcomes

Key dates and timetable

(1), (2)

Each class is numbered in brackets.
Where more than one class is offered, students normally attend only one.

Classes are held weekly unless otherwise indicated.


If you are enrolled for this topic, but all classes for one of the activities (eg tutorials) are full,
contact your College Office for assistance. Full classes frequently occur near the start of semester.

Students may still enrol in topics with full classes as more places will be made available as needed.

If this padlock appears next to an activity name (eg Lecture), then class registration is closed for this activity.

Class registration normally closes at the end of week 2 of each semester.

Classes in a stream are grouped so that the same students attend all classes in that stream.
Registration in the stream will result in registration in all classes.
  Unless otherwise advised, classes are not held during semester breaks or on public holidays.
