"III International Conference Aprolínguas 2021"

The Faculty of Human and Social Sciences, the School of Education and Communication, and the School of Management, Hospitality and Tourism of the University of Algarve organize the "III International Conference Aprolínguas 2021:Foreign Language teaching and learning in the classroom and online: tradition, perspectives and challenges ", which will take place on December 2-3, 2021, in online format.

The long-lasting effects of the measures to combat the pandemic has forced us to rethink education in general and the teaching of foreign languages in particular. The transition from face-to-face education to online and / or blended teaching has been a challenge for both teachers and students. Thus, we feel the need to analyse these new scenarios, and also to reflect on the teaching activities and educational resources, within the context of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
Bearing in mind that some changes generated in the past and by the current situation must have come to stay for the foreseeable future, we propose to establish boundaries between tradition and more recent practices, between the tangible and the desirable, between enthusiasm and reticence, between teachers and students, to make clear what are the challenges for education and training.
APROLÍNGUAS launches the challenge of assessing the current trends in the approaches of the language teaching-learning process, the theories of language and learning that support them, the methodological principles and the classroom practices, over the last twenty years since the Bologna process.
Thus, we invite the scientific community to participate in this international conference by submitting paper proposals under one of the following thematic strands.

•    Foreign Language teaching methods.
•    Foreign language teachers’ skills. 
•    The use of ICT in FL classes.
•    Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) in Higher Education.
•    FL for professional and academic purposes
•    Affective factors in foreign language acquisition and teaching-learning.
•    Language policies and internationalization in Higher Education.

The event is organized in collaboration with APEF, APPELE and ReCLes.pt.
