As the deadline for our survey on digital attitudes in Modern (Foreign) Languages approaches, now is your last chance to make your voice heard. How have digital culture & technology transformed your engagement with Modern Languages? What advantages and limitations do they bring? Where does ‘digital’ fit into other discussions about the future of Modern Languages?
We started the survey with the aim of understanding better how digital culture and technology have influenced, or might influence, Modern Foreign Languages research through various perspectives – those carrying it out (at university or as practitioners), those learning/teaching it and those involved in policy/funding decisions. The survey forms part of a much wider research plan which includes interviews, case studies and literature/resource reviews, where our research strand Digital Mediations explores attitudes towards digital culture in the Modern Foreign Languages, with attention to both theory and practice.
We would be very interested to hear about any experience in Modern Foreign Languages.
The survey is aimed at people with any level of digital expertise, and whose work involves Modern Foreign Languages in any role (whether that be as researcher, learner, teacher, funder, policy-maker, digital practitioner, cultural practitioner or other).
We welcome your input into our survey -it takes 15 minutes to complete and your responses will be totally anonymous. Your input is important to us and can help us understand what role digital culture & technology play in the future of the field.
Let us know what you think – there is still time!You can take part in the survey here!
