We run a series of weekly workshops focusing on the intersections of computer-mediated language pedagogy and applied linguistics, where we investigate creative and thoughtful application of technology in a language classroom. Spring 2018 workshops are offered every Wednesday and Thursday between 2.30pm and 3.30pm in IAB / LRC 253.
In addition to the workshops we also offer class demos and one-on-one tutorial sessions with faculty in areas of designing, developing and using multimedia elements as well as in using the technology tools mentioned on this site. In-person training is a great way to take advantage of our collaborative learning space and multimedia studio, as well as the various electronic classrooms available at the LRC.
In order to assist the Columbia language community in the creation of instructional material, the LRC maintains a range of equipment that can be made available as needed to language instructors and students.
