David Neville publishes article in The Language Educator

David Neville, assistant professor of German and director of language-learning technologies, has published the article "The Future of Language Education: Facilitating Collaboration Through Technology” in the most recent issue of The Language Educator.

Published by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, The Language Educator provides educators of all languages at all levels with comprehensive coverage of important trends and developments in foreign language education.

In his article, Neville describes how new and emerging technologies hold the potential of making the study of a second language and culture more accessible to a wider range of interested students and will facilitate collaboration between colleagues in diverse academic fields. He also proposes that the creation of open educational resources with these technologies will help to bring teaching practice and research closer together and will also formulate new instructional best practices in second language and culture acquisition.
