SCHEDULE:

1) Caio Albernaz Siqueira, PhD student, Spanish & Portuguese


Title: Teaching Languages through Zoom: Let’s not Forget the Basics  


This talk aims to share strategies and techniques to teach languages through zoom without forgetting the basics: language presentation, monitoring, time management, note taking, etc.  


2) Honaida Yousuf Ahyad, Lecturer, Translation and Interpretive Studies  


Title: The Power of Annotation  


In learning Arabic as a foreign language, students learn how to use a completely different writing system. The annotation feature of Zoom is an excellent tool where a teacher can check students’ writing and provide them with instant feedback. In my presentation, I provide samples of writing activities where annotation is used.  


3) Sara Saez-Fajardo: Graduate student, Spanish & Portuguese  


Title: Zooming out: Finding alternatives for students’ interaction in the age of virtual learning  


The new “ZOOM fatigue” phenomenon is making learning and socializing more and more taxing. In this presentation, I will talk about alternatives to ZOOM, not only for classroom interaction, but also for students’ communication out of class. Particularly, I will introduce my use of Gather Town, an inventive platform where students can navigate a private virtual map and have conversations with different groups of classmates.  


4) Brenden Carollo: Language Director, Spanish & Portuguese  


Title: Letter Soup and The Power of Puzzles  


In this presentation, I will explain a unique way to incorporate functional language and information gap into a traditional word search activity that never fails to engage students.  

 

 

5) Laura Hill, Language Director, French and Italian

 

Title:  YouTube and the Teaching of Grammar 

 

During the pandemic, the production and posting of grammar videos on YouTube has increased dramatically.  I will show how the most recent edition of the e-Text for one of my Intermediate courses has benefited from these new resources. 

 

6) Raquel Goebel: Language Director, Spanish & Portuguese

 

Title: Creating engaging video activities 

 

If you are interested in making your listening activities more engaging, be ready to use PlayPosit! In this presentation I will show how simple and quick it is to set up a bulb and make videos and recorded presentations more engaging.
