OER Hangout: Creating inclusive open resources for language learning
Wednesday, February 19, 2020 -
16:00 to 17:00
Online in Zoom
Carlos Pio (University of Pennsylvania)
Eduardo Viana da Silva (University of Washington)
In this discussion-based webinar, Eduardo Viana da Silva and Carlos Pio will share examples from an inclusionary e-textbook they are developing for language classes with the collaboration and feedback from Portuguese speakers of several economic and cultural backgrounds. By focusing on listening to the language of a given community and committing to reproduce it, minority groups are not portrayed as ‘curiosities’, but as an integral part of the cultures being represented, and the range of language registers, from formal to informal, reflects that.
There will be 20 minutes of presentation time, and the rest of the hour will be dedicated to your questions and to conversation between participants and panelists.
