Working at the Intersection of Language and Culture in the Digital Age: Practical Approaches to the Pedagogy of Cultural Learning

A workshop organized by Shoggy Waryn (French Studies, Brown University) and the Center for Language Studies at Brown University with Support from the Consortium for Language Teaching and Learning and the Center for Language Studies (CLS, Brown)

Date:  October 5th 2013, 8:30 am-6:00 pm

Venue: ECT lab 201, CIT WATSON BUILDING, 366 Brook Street, Brown University, Providence.

The aim of the proposed workshop is practical: by examining various approaches and modalities of cultural and intercultural learning through the prism of current pedagogical practices, we seek to redefine the goals of “cultural/intercultural” teaching and reassess the role of the teacher/facilitator within this new world of technological possibilities.

The questions are: How do we define transcultural competence and how do we assess progress when most of the learning occurs outside the classroom, in incremental and almost “invisible” ways?  A related question we will explore is to define the new role of the teacher in this fundamentally changed paradigm.

By bringing together a group of teachers who use a variety of approaches and tools to bring cultural and transcultural competence to the forefront of their teaching practices, this workshop aims at fostering exchange and practices that may be applicable across a range of languages, both commonly and less commonly taught, and at all levels of the language curriculum.
