Join us to celebrate the publication of the 2015 volume of the CALICO Monograph Book Series, Researching Language Learner Interaction Online: From Social Media to MOOCs, edited by Ed Dixon of the Penn Language Center and Michael Thomas of the University of Central Lancashire.  This year’s volume focuses on language learning in the digitally-mediated environment and is of particular interest to language educators at Penn who are interested in incorporating technology in the classroom and/or teaching in online or blended learning environments. Technology tools mentioned in the monograph complement the PLC-sponsored May workshops for language educators at the Weigle Information Commons. This year’s volume includes a chapter by Vickie Karasic and Anu Vedantham of Penn Libraries entitled Video Creation Tools for Language Learning:  Lessons Learned, in which they examine - through course observations, faculty interviews, and student surveys - student and faculty perceptions of the usefulness of video tools and the role of the library in technology support. We plan to Skype with authors and have a lively conversation about language learning in the digital environment. Several articles were reviewed by experts and faculty at Penn: Jacqueline Dougherty, David James, Helen McFie Simone, Maria Paredes Fernández, Jay Treat, and Lillyrose Veneziano Broccia. Lunch will be provided. Please see more resources and an extended description.
