The Podcast project: An integrated approach to language learning.

Julie Deconinck, Sarah D'Hertefelt

Research output: Unpublished contribution to conferenceUnpublished abstract


In this presentation we report on an educational project in development, carried out with first-year university students (English level: B2) enrolled in the Applied Linguistics programme at the VUB (N=73). The project as a whole took a task-based learning approach: functional, fluent, and accurate language use was practised and enhanced though the creation and development of podcasts, which the students worked on in teams both during and outside class hours. We will delineate the sequence of tasks involved in the project, and share ideas for improving it in the future on the basis of student feedback collected at the end of term as well as our own experience.
