Description

The Image Conference is an innovative and collaborative project which seeks to explore the possibilities which film, video, images and video games offer to both language teachers and language learners. The rationale behind The Image Conference is that today we are saturated with visual stimulation and that the visual image has taken over. In the twenty-first century, the ability to interpret, analyse and create images is an integral part of literacy. The aim of The Image Conference is to put images at the centre of the language learning agenda and offer guidance on using images critically and creatively in language teaching in the age of the Internet. The Image Conference brings together leading experts and practitioners in the use of images in language learning who share their experiences, insights and know-how and provides participants with an excellent opportunity to enhance their competence in the innovative and creative use of images.

Our presentation: In a cross-disciplinary project involving students in economics and as part of an English entrepreneurial-oriented course, second-year students in computer sciences create a video teaser to promote their mobile application project. This project enables both groups of students to develop to different extents linguistic, entrepreneurial, technical or soft skills.
