Foreign Language Learning Processes

Observing - Initiating - Managing - Monitoring

Friday, March 1st 2013 – Saturday, March 2nd 2013
at the University of Bremen

Recent discussions in the field of foreign language teaching and learning have concerned many new aspects: including the task-based definition of learning goals, the clear differentiation of competence levels, and the introduction of binding quality standards. These discussions have also pursued the goal of improving the efficiency and success of foreign language learning processes. However, the learning processes themselves have only been taken into consideration to a much lesser extent.

The 4th Bremen Symposion 2013 offers a platform that will bring together practical research results and reflected practice with regard to the organisation of foreign language learning processes in the institutional context of Higher Education. Against the background of this objective, all contributions are welcome that either give a duly reasoned guideline to the optimal organisation of learning processes from a research perspective, or that reflect the impacts and the success of classroom and/ or autonomous learning arrangements from a practitioner's perspective.
