Teaching Online: Media Arabic

Presented as part of the Language Teaching Forum.

Arab Current Affairs and Media Arabic is a third-year course taught for the first time at ANU in second semester 2014. It is the first Arabic course to be offered as part of the CASS Online Languages Project solely using Moodle (Wattle) for content, delivery and assessment.

This presentation aims at providing an overview of the course structure, and at sharing some of the successes and challenges faced during the development and teaching stages.

The Language Teaching Forum aims to provide a discussion platform for language teachers and researchers across ANU colleges. Its main objective is to enhance the exchange of research and new approaches in language education. The forum is open to interested people from outside the university such as school teachers and teachers from community schools.

The LTF is held on the first Wednesday of each month, 4.15-5.15pm followed by drinks and nibbles.

The forum is jointly coordinated by:
•Dr Gabriele Schmidt, School of Literature, Languages and Linguistics, CASS
•Dr Duck-Young Lee, School of Culture, History & Language, CAP
•Ms France Meyer, Centre for Arab & Islamic Studies, CASS
