Short Session Description (one line): The session would focus on the need and ways of facilitating learning with the help of multimedia, in a large classroom.
Full Session Description (as long as you would like): Teachers, who teach large classrooms, have to address the needs of different types of students. Besides teaching the language skills, they need to develop a few skills, such as higher order skills, problem-solving skills and technical skills (to list a few) among students, in order to make them autonomous learners. Multimedia is one of the tools that could be used for facilitating such learning among students. While the tool helps students to self-direct their learning, it provides an opportunity for teachers to exhibit their innovative teaching strategies by way of designing varied tasks. The presenter would throw light on two aspects, the prospects of using multimedia for (1) language learning and (2) teacher development. She would also discuss the feasibility of designing and administering tasks with the limited Learning Management System (LMS).
