The Teacher Education SIG 

The EuroCALL Teacher Education special interest group focuses on issues related to language teaching with technologies and in particular how teachers learn to

  • integrate learning technologies into teaching practice
  • develop techno-pedagogical competencies
  • evolve with changing tools, methods and learners.

We are especially interested in

  • how teachers can be supported in CALL practice
  • research methods in teacher education
  • links between CALL research and teaching practice.

What are the SIG’s activities?

The activities of the SIG include:

  • Sharing information with other members on recent developments in teacher education through the SIG ning.
  • Organising dedicated symposia at EUROCALL conferences. Organising regional workshops in members’ home institutions which will enable members to make others aware of EUROCALL’s work.
  • Collaborating together on the development of international project proposals.
  • Encouraging SIG members to visit each others’ institutions with the aim of developing collaboration.
  • Establishing links with other organisations’ special interest groups working in related areas.
