You're invited to participate in the research project: Developing language specific teaching strategies and resources.
We want to find out:
How do teachers support students’ understanding of a difficult aspect of the target language, for example gender of nouns, verb conjugation, tone?
Who’s running the project?
The research is being conducted by Dr Hongzhi Yang, the coordinator of the Languages methodology courses at the University of Sydney.
This information will be used to develop:
Language-specific multimedia, online modules to enhance languages preservice teachers’ learning. The proposed interactive online modules will feature videos of experienced language teachers from both primary and secondary schools and form the basis for student teacher resource development and provide continuing up-to-date support.
