EALC Invites Guest Speaker on Post-Communicative Pedagogies

WashU language instructors from across departments are coordinately invited to attend a guest talk on language education by Angela Lee-Smith, Senior Lector II in East Asian Languages and Literatures at Yale University.

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.

The talk is sponsored by WashU’s department of East Asian Languages and Cultures. For more information and to register to attend this Zoom talk, please visit EALC’s events page.
