Academic Writing Symposium was held at Justus Liebig University, Giessen on April 6-7, 2017.
The 14th FOCI event took place on December 15th and 16th, 2016 and was hosted by Doğuş University in Istanbul. Educational technology, a topic of high interest to many of us involved in language teaching and learning, was at the centre of this event. As stated on the FOCI website, the main purpose of these two days was ‘to clarify the practical ways of systematically integrating technological tools into the delivery of the curriculum in such a way that will allow technology to be exploited in a pedagogically effective way in our classes’.
“You should do it,” they said. “It’ll be fun,” they said. Well… it was that and more. Up until last year, we used to mostly ignore those e-mails regarding the Erasmus staff exchange program, thinking it was probably only just aimed for department professors.
