Getting 2021 underway: EuroCALL AGM paves the way for this year's conference.

 

EuroCALL AGM in zoom January 22nd 2021


The invitation to attend our Annual General Meeting:


It was unusually joyful as formal meetings go, especially given we are still in the throes of a global pandemic! You can find all the documentation for the AGM on the EuroCALL website by logging in to the Member's Area.
 
Despite our regrets about missing our physical visit to Copenhagen, we reflected on the fellowship we had enjoyed at the Gathering in the summer where circumstances had led to many new experiences. Our first ever visualisation of our community on our Gathering map and our first ever You Tube channel. Our Treasurer delighted all with his media rich presentation which included a soundtrack and a reminder that EuroCALL has to be prepared whatever the weather:



And so, with this in mind we continue our preparations for the future. The Eurocall 2021 conference website is up and plans are quite advanced despite the many uncertainties. You can follow updates on twitter too. This year we will have a blended conference with some in person possibilities. See the website for details. 

As ever, there will be a rich, research-informed programme, many opportunities to network and learn from this wonderful community. Our Special Interest Groups will host workshops or symposia on the second day and these will be open to all comers online. The conference committee wish us to continue to build upon the wonderful fellowship we all enjoyed at the Gathering and we need your help to help ensure the future of this organisation through expanding our membership. 

Please spread the word, encourage friends and colleagues to join EuroCALL and we can all support each other in overcoming the challenge that is teaching and learning in a global pandemic.

Message from the LMOOC SIG

 


The LMOOC SIG is trying to build a database of good practice to help us understand the profile of LMOOC practitioners: Who are we? What languages are the most popular ones for LMOOCs? How do we organise the course design? What is our main focus? It is part of the ongoing work developed by this SIG, in the endeavour of spreading quality LMOOC practice and research.

 

If you are or have been involved with LMOOCs (as a course designer, tutor, facilitator, researcher, etc.) we would love to hear from you. Please complete this survey https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScyWT3KZncl6pUB2wZu1FXoUOPBevCKnAJsR9teIiL-Sysnpg/viewform  It will only take you 5 minutes and will help us understand the landscape of LMOOC practice and research.
