IATEFL Learning Technologies SIG free online conference, Feb. 6


IATEFL LTSIG Research Book Conference

IATEFL Learning Technologies SIG would like to invite you to their online conference to explore the studies published in our recent book Digital Innovations and Research in Language Learning (2020).

The authors will present their studies, which explore the pedagogical potential and realities of learning technologies in a wide range of language education contexts, and they will address the developments or applications brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic and the shift to remote teaching and learning.

Featuring presentations on topics such as virtual schooling, game-based learning, autonomy, inclusion, academic reading, student empowerment, CPD, and digital responsibility and ethics, this event will provide useful insights into the impact of digital learning in language education.
