TechnoPlus Englisch: The Development and Use of CALL and e&m-earning Materials,
Ms. Christine Sick, University of Applied Sciences in Saarbrücken, Germany
Place: Room F307

Time: 13.00 – 13.45
Description: In recent years, there has been a growing demand for the teaching and learning of Business English in combination with Technical English. As learner groups in engineering contexts are also becoming more and more heterogeneous as well as more digitally mobile, customised e- and mobile learning materials for use in a blended learning setting are increasingly required to meet the particular needs of these students. Using the TechnoPlus English Suite as an example, this presentation will focus on the design, development and use of PC-based as well as e&m-learning materials (not just) for students of engineering. The suite, which has been developed at htw saar in cooperation with the software company EUROKEY, aims at learners of Business English and Technical English and consists of three components complementing each other: a PC-based program, Online Extensions and a VocabApp.
