The CAP/CASS Innovation in Teaching Showcase is a collaborative event between both of our Colleges and is a forum for exploration of a variety of academic ideas, stimulating panel discussions and workshops, and a practical showcase of some of the innovative technologies used in both of our Colleges’ course work.

The event runs over two days. Day two of the program features the following sessions from CHL educators.

Jenny Homerang – Pacific Language Course Developer

Tok Pisin, a Papua New Guinean language, is to be taught online in 2019. This presentation discusses the lingua francalanguage of Papua New Guinea Tok Pisin and the journey of the CAP Online Language course development team’s work in bringing one of the most widely spoken languages of PNG to the online teaching environment.

Peter Friedlander–Teaching Hindi through comics: visual languages in language learning.

2– 2:30pm

Peter Friedlander is the Convenor for Hindi and Indian Studies at ANU. He has been developing comics for teaching Hindi which are now used in the ANU on-campus and online Hindi program. He is interested in how teaching using visual materials gives learners new ways to learn pragmatic language use in context.

Dr Fan Shengyu, Senior Lecturer–Technology for teaching translation: CHIN3041/6041 Chinese-English Translation

2.30 – 3pm

With the help of a VC Teaching Enhancement Grant in 2016, I started experimenting with apps and online tools in teaching translation. Such experiments are timely opportunities for me to reflect on my own teaching as well as for students to learn to cooperate and help each other.
