About this Event

Due to the recent coronavirus outbreak, we have made the decision to reschedule our event. The workshop will be postponed to a later date. We will inform you when a new date is available.

While it is disappointing to reschedule, we encourage everyone to follow the guidance of the World Health Organisation and local public health officials, and look forward to seeing you at upcoming events.

Best regards,

Team DigiLEON

Despite a constant increase in opportunities for university study abroad and student mobility across Europe, there is a lack of a unified format for teacher training at a European level. Local approaches to teacher training and an absence of appropriate ICT tools for learning and communication, limit future teachers to develop their teaching practice beyond linguistic and cultural borders.

The aim of the Erasmus+ project VIRTEACH is to unify teaching practices for foreign language teaching, by creating a digital tool to provide teachers, researchers, student teachers and policymakers with open-source tools and resource for learning and communication.To that end, the VIRTEACH team presents its first results in an International Workshop on foreign language teaching. This includes a discussion of the current status of foreign language teacher training in Europe and the gaps or needs that arise from this situation, as well as an extensive research into best practices and language training activities. The workshop will also explore the role of virtual learning environments in teaching and coaching trainee-teachers in their pre-service phase.

The workshop offers teachers, researchers and student teachers international expertise on best practices and methodologies in language teaching, as well as a presentation of digital tools for communication and pre-service student guidance.

*Participants in the workshop will receive a certificate after attendance!
