Course content

Language learning is a key topic in the Language and Literacies Research Cluster. In today’s globalised world, language learning and teaching is of increasing importance. In this area, a range of methodologies are applied to researching the teaching and learning of languages including the use of large multimodal corpora, sociocultural approaches and digitally mediated communication. Key projects include: developing online teaching skills and telecollaboration in Higher Education, effective e-feedback, the use of social media, and eyetracking (a technology recording the gaze focus of learners during online tasks to establish attention focus and learning strategies).
