Description
This proposal seeks to build on the success of a pilot study to determine if the use of telecollaborative conversations and Integrated Learning Practices (ILP) in language courses results in increased pedagogical effectiveness and greater student learning outcomes. The study will evaluate the pedagogical benefits of incorporating meaningful telecollaborative conversations using the TalkAbroad platform combined with ILP and e-Portfolio-Based Pedagogy (ePBP) into the world languages curriculum for Arabic, French, German, and Italian. Eight faculty members and 136 students will participate. The evaluation will provide a model for incorporating integrated learning practices that help students collect, select and reflect on their language learning processes.
