Enhancing foreign language teaching

A seminar aimed at both new and experienced modern foreign language teachers is to take place at Leeds on 22 September.

The event will offer a forum to share ideas and innovation in modern language teaching.

The day will take the format of a series of workshops focusing on:

  • lesson planning in language teaching
  • student participation and motivation
  • feedback and assessment.

There will also be an opportunity for participants to deliver a "mini-lesson" and receive feedback from the group, and a question and answer session will facilitate further discussion between colleagues.

The event aims to provide new tutors and language assistants with a thorough induction to the principles of language teaching and to encourage good practice in MFL teaching in Higher Education.

Registration is open to anyone from a UK university with language teaching responsibility, and free to University of Leeds postgraduate students. As places are limited, priority will be given to new language tutors and assistants.

The workshop, which is being sponsored by the LHRI (Leeds Humanities Research Institute), will take place:

On:  22 September 2011

At:   9am-5pm

In:   Maurice Keyworth Seminar Room (1.05), Leeds University Business School

Lunch will be provided.

To register please contact Natalia Bremner (PG co-ordinator).
