Introduction Call for proposals Advisory Group Calendar Tutorials

The Digital Modern Languages tutorial writing sprint was a physical and virtual event designed to create a variety of open educational resources demonstrating the critical use of digital tools and methods for teachers, learners and researchers interested in modern languages and cultures. 

Following on from the strand’s landscaping exercises mapping interactions between modern languages and digital culture, it was the latest in a series of events exploring practical engagements between the two, in this case focusing on the potential of critical digital literacies and creative digital methods to reshape how learners engage with modern languages and cultures. 

A series of tutorials from the event was published as an Open Access special collection , guest edited by Paul Spence & Renata Brandão, on Modern Languages Open: https://www.modernlanguagesopen.org/collections/special/dml-tutorials/

The publication, titled 'Critical Digital Pedagogies in Modern Languages - a Tutorial Collection' offers online tutorials which explore the theories & applications of digital methods & tools for engaging with Modern Languages & cultures.
