The aim of this seminar is to assist ELT professionals to acquire a clearer understanding of how technology can contribute to the learning / teaching process. A great deal of attention is currently paid to the use of computers and other electronic media in the teaching and learning of languages, and the quantity and diversity of material in electronic form (on the Web, for example) is growing at a rate that few can keep up with. There is a great need for institutions to make informed decisions about technology, and this seminar will help participants to acquire a broader perspective.

This seminar is designed for experienced ELT professionals, especially for those who make decisions about materials, methods and programme design, those who have responsibility for staff training in technology, or those who will assume these roles in the future. No particular level of expertise in technology is required.
