What does a language classroom in the Post-Method Era look like? How can 21st-century skills be integrated into language learning?

(Virtual presentation via Zoom)

This talk will provide an overview of post-communicative pedagogies, offering various concrete examples to foster deeper and creative learning in language classrooms at all levels.

The presenter will showcase students’ meaningful project-based learning and products in real-world contexts. The learning outcomes will demonstrate how projects help learners develop language skills while engaging with other disciplines and acquiring information through diverse perspectives and multimodal meaning-making in the 21st century.
Participants will (i) acquire practical ideas for facilitating meaningful connections between content and language learning and (ii) gain insights into the strategic steps and modules to integrate project-based learning into their language curriculum.
