Two-day Faculty Development Workshop on TEACHING ENGLISH WITH TECHNOLOGY 24 & 25 January, 2018 | 9 am – 4.30 pm Research Department of English St. Joseph's College (Autonomous), Tiruchirappalli, Tamilnadu













Concept Note:

The unprecedented development of technology has certainly influenced English language education. The web 2.0 has revolutionized pedagogy, roles of learners, teachers, parents, and policy makers, teaching tools, learning materials, teaching and learning strategies, etc. This dramatic change has thus disrupted the conventional system of teaching and learning English. However, English language teachers are not yet fully prepared to meet the challenges in preparing the Generation Z learners for their future careers that have not yet been created. The Generation Z, born between 1995 and 2012, is growing up in a world that is entirely different from what their parents and teachers grew up in. They are constantly on smart devices. They text instead of calling; they tweet; they instagram; they whatsapp; and they even design their own apps. On the contrary, their teachers lecture, use only blackboards, and expect learners to write elaborately in exams. 


Therefore, this faculty development workshop attempts to bridge this wide gap by familiarizing the participating teachers with the web tools that help them

  • to develop course sites with multimedia resources,
  • to set up discussion forums for engaging learners in creating new knowledge, and
  • to conduct formative assessment to help learners check their learning.
