Abstract

This volume collects selected papers from the 2017 Innovative Language Teaching and Learning at University conference, which took place on the 16th of June at The Open University. The theme of the conference was Integrating informal learning into formal language education.

As contact time with students is increasingly reduced in higher education, teachers are looking at ways to support their students with resources that can be used outside the classroom. This means that many teachers are looking at approaches such as flipping the classroom or initiatives like the use of social media to access resources or interact with peers or native speakers, telecollaboration activities between learners in different countries, or the co-creation of learning artefacts such as videos, websites, or texts. The incorporation of such activities into the curriculum blurs the boundaries between formal and informal activity.

The chapters in this book provide insights into many types of these innovative approaches to teaching languages at university and beyond. The contributing authors have experimented with new strategies to enrich their students’ learning experience or identified new ways of using existing resources in and outside the classroom.
