MACAWS Webinar Poster

Webinar presented by: Bruna Sommer-Farias, Adriana Picoral, Shelley Staples, Aleksey Novikov, Mariana Centanin- Bertho.

Participants in this free, live webinar will explore the Multilingual Academic Corpus of Assignments – Writing and Speech (MACAWS), an ongoing project building a corpus of assignments (written texts, spoken discourse and multimedia products such as blogs) produced by learners in Russian and Portuguese language programs at the University of Arizona. Following the premise that language is highly patterned, participants will learn how to create digital pedagogical materials using interactive Data-driven Learning (iDDL) to inductively guide students to discover language patterns. Participants will be guided through a hands-on experience on how to embed MACAWS searches into their activities and how to integrate iDDL with other available technologies, such as forms, websites and collaborative boards.

Registration closes at 5 p.m.on Jun. 11, 2021.
