The Language Program is inviting you to join them in this specially curated webinar series which aims to help teachers chart the importance of language education despite these limited situations. LP hopes that even during this pandemic, language teachers can still situate themselves using remote learning modes to teach language/languages to the best that they can.
The general theme of the webinar aims to focus on three crucial impressions in English Language Education: the nature of language and language change, the variousness of language, and the teaching-learning of language in the context of the pandemic. Thus, we offer:
Language, Languages, Languaging in the multilingual 21st century classroom
A webinar series on the role of language in 21st century multilingual English Language Education
The webinar series will be on August 18, September 1 and September 29 from 3:00PM to 5:00PM. The webinar is for free and will be done virtually via Zoom. We hope to stream this live through social media to have a wider reach and participation from the public.
The Language Program was able to invite world-renowned experts in language and language education in the persons of Dr. Ruanni Tupas of University College London, Dr. Ron Darvin of The Chinese University Hong Kong and Dr. Ma. Althea T. Enriquez of UP Diliman.
