Presentation title
Evaluating teachers’ capacity in using materials for blended language programs
Presentation abstract
The pandemic has changed the landscape of language programs. One of the most notable areas is materials in use. As Bax pointed out that the use of technology in language education is still far from normalisation, there is a need to understand the current state of blended learning practices among language teachers. Focusing on materials in use, this study aimed to unpack the complexities faced by teachers with varying degrees of digital literacies and their capacity on using materials for purposeful learning. Using participatory action research, ethnography, and argument-based approaches, I set out to evaluate five teachers’ capacity in using materials designed for blended language programs in an Australian university. I gathered evidence using interviews, observations, and document analysis for two years. The analysis points to moderate support for the claim that teachers are capable of using materials for blended language programs. This study contributes to a view that focusing on teachers’ capacity in the use of materials may lead to insights into teacher education programs and continuous professional development that is relevant in a world dependent on networked technologies for language learning.
