slide1
Eurocall Conference
  • Granada
  • September 4-7, 2006
  • Large scale implementation of blended language learning environments
  • (BLLE)
    • Alessandra Corda, Petra Heck
    • Universiteit Leiden / Tilburg University
slide2
General background
    • English: language of instruction in almost all MA courses in the Netherlands (from 2006-2007)
    • English competence level Dutch students: C1 receptive skills, B1 productive skills
    • International students: generally lower level
    • Great demand for academic English courses (both students and staff)
      • focus on speaking and writing
      • need for differentiation
slide3
The INTUIT project (I)
    • 1-1-2006 - 31-12-2007
    • 6 university language centres
    • Development of an ICT enriched learning environment to support English for academic purposes
    • No distance learning, blended learning
    • Target group: 10,000 students every year
    • 2006: 12 pilot projects, 2007: large scale implementation
slide4
The INTUIT project (II)
  • Pedagogical aims: implementation Common European Framework and autonomous language learning
  • Pilots:
    • Diagnostic testing (Dialang and Set 10)
    • Language practice (Ellips and Academic Word List)
    • Guidance (web based language portfolio)
  • Blackboard
slide5
Success and failure factors
  • Implementation BLLE influenced by:
  • Relation between computer-supported and non computer-supported activities
  • Teacher professional development
  • Technical constraints
slide6
Relation between computer-supported and non-computer supported activities
  • On the basis of which factors do teachers decide which activities should be supported by the computer?
slide7
Computer-supported vs non computer supported activities
  • Added value computer:
    • “tutor” function (interactive exercises; focus on receptive skills)
    • test function
    • organizational function (teacher centered: Blackboard)
  • But: focus on productive skills  added value computer:
    • “tool” function (support for speaking skills)
    • portfolio function (student centered)
slide8
Relation between computer-supported and non-computer supported activities
  • Which computer-supported activities are perceived to be most effective by teachers and students, and why?
slide9
Grammar
    • diagnostic interactive tests (Blackboard);
    • on the basis of the results students are advised to do specific interactive exercises (Ellips)
  • Why? Differentiation; more efficient use of contact hours. Remedial teaching.
  • Speaking skills:
    • self assessment through can-do statements portfolio with recorded monologues
    • self reflection, feedback
  • Why? Differentiation; stimulating autonomous learning and self reflection
slide10
Relation between computer-supported and non-computer supported activities
  • For which functions is the computer now mostly used and why?
slide11
Use of ICT at the start of the project
    • 2 Language Centers (LC): only links
    • 2 LC: tests (QPT, Dialang), digital language lab
    • 2 LC: Blackboard, interactive exercise (1 LC: also digital language lab)
slide12
For which functions is the computer now mostly used and why?
    • Placement and diagnostic testing (also web based: SET 10, Dialang)
    • Digital language labs; Blackboard; interactive exercises
    • Language portfolio
    • Why?
    • time saving
    • efficiency

  • New pedagogy under construction …
