Visit website

Event Date: 09/09/2017 09:30 - 13:30

This is the first TeCoLa Conference/Workshop on telecollaboration, gamification and virtual worlds for language learning and teaching, aimed at secondary school and further education Modern Languages teachers. This event is funded by the European Commission and will be free of charge for all participants.The project is a follow-up of the work undertaken in the TILA project on the use of telecollaboration for language learning and teaching. This new project is called TeCoLa, it will run until 2019 and it focuses on gamification and virtual worlds.

The conference/workshop will take place at University of Roehampton on Saturday 9 September from 9.30 to 13.30 (London time) (sandwich lunch provided). The event will also be live-streamed, so those of you who cannot travel to Roehampton on that date will also be able to follow the conference through our YouTube channel and to ask questions via chat. As you will see on the programmes attached, however, the hands-on workshop will only run for the face-to-face conference and will be replaced with additional presentations for the audience following us online.

Visit the website to register for both modes of attendance and you can see the programme in the posters attached (please note that times are listed in either London or mainland Europe times!).

Places are limited, so we would encourage those of you attending face to face to register as soon as possible.

Our upcoming conference/workshop will be the perfect opportunity to meet the whole TeCoLa team, to learn more about the tasks that will be implemented with the students in TeCoLa and how gamification and virtual worlds can be used for language learning.

The event will take place in Queen’s Building, very close to the main entrance, in Chapman Hall, opposite Queen’s Building reception.
