New Directions in DDL
· Date: Friday 8 June 2018
· Time: 10:00am to 5:00pm
· Venue: Centre for Academic Writing, Coventry University, CV1 5DD
· Guest speaker: Maggie Charles, University of Oxford
The idea that corpora offer great potential for language teaching/learning has existed for more than 30 years, since Tim Johns first started referring to Data Driven Learning (DDL) in the 1980s. However, this potential has yet to be fully realised in mainstream teaching. This BAAL Corpus Linguistics SIG event aims to show some ways in which DDL is being used in 2018 and discuss how we can integrate developments in technology to help the spread of this still innovative approach. The programme will include an introduction to the BAWE quicklinks<https://url6.mailanyone.net/v1/?m=1ezQX2-0007Un-5D&i=57e1b682&c=flmFCSyrhe6VJigr5MQDf8QHnQ5NhWBw7nGzua2fsjwagz6TAUeIM7oguAsZ3Y4JGPS9zYriY45F1LlZqVnMFVv9gTIB_ZaaKlAjKhI1D6NwlCwg05RL69zGHaDHyk7jQpo5csKIJGtiUAGSbH-2qzTlhssW36lKm_18fyOUnTsu8QN2Gxmz59R97gRr5ud3wiqTznRotDVss9BVMYs4sHQdUBMYvYxGo74P7UjLbJ4yVS7mD-Qr4jOW85YhWhWq> project, which has recently started at Coventry University.
We invite proposals for 30-minute presentations to complete the programme. These will discuss an aspect of DDL / using corpora in the language learning classroom. Please send 250-word abstracts to Hilary Nesi (h.nesi at coventry.ac.uk<mailto:h.nesi at coventry.ac.uk>) by 21 April 2018.
