Research Project: Technology-mediated language teaching: A study investigating language teacher knowledge and competencies

Many of us now agree that technology is an integral aspect of language teaching. Yet we may not always be confident about our use of technology in ways that increase student learning and engagement. This study examines teachers’ technological knowledge and skills to help us understand how technology is being used in the language classroom, and what types of support and training would benefit language teachers.

In this study, you will be asked to complete a 20-minute online questionnaire asking about your knowledge and abilities teaching and using technology, and you will be invited for a follow-up interview if you would like to share more information. All data collected are confidential and no personal information will be shared. In appreciation of your time, we offer a draw for a $50 gift card after completing the survey and an individual $25 gift card in thanks for participating in a follow up interview.
