Creativity and Play in the Early Language Classroom: Techniques for Student Engagement in Proficiency Development
April 28, 2016 @ 7pm EST

 
Victoria Gilbert, Ph.D.
Educator and Author
Kelly Devall, Ph.D.
NNELL Journal Editor
 
For Dr. Victoria Gilbert, creativity and play are key elements in developing proficiency in the early language classroom. Engaging students in “deconstructing and reconstructing” vocabulary and forms to encourage personal expression is constructive and allows us to collaborate with our students to use the target language in innovative, truly communicative ways. Join us for a Q & A as Dr. Gilbert elaborates on Creativity and Play in the Early Language Classroom: Techniques for Student Engagement in Proficiency Development.
 
 

 


 

     
Turnaround to Transfer: Design Beyond the Modes
May 9, 2016 @ 3pm EST


 
Jennifer Eddy, Ph.D.
Educator and Author
Kelly Devall, Ph.D.
NNELL Journal Editor
 
Dr. Jennifer Eddy states that transfer requires inference and negotiation of meaning, not just collecting facts, repeating a skill and completing a drill. She adds that without transfer, the language learner forgets, misunderstands a concept or only knows it in the rigid predictable context in which it was taught. Join us for a Q & A as Dr. Eddy elaborates on Turnaround to Transfer: Design beyond the method from the 2014 Spring Summer NNELL Journal vol. 19 issue 2.
