Event Description

Join us at Princeton for an enriching experience at the VI Consortium Workshop for Language Teaching and Learning (CLTL), dedicated to exploring the transformative role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in language teaching, learning, and assessment. We offer a collaborative platform for language educators of diverse backgrounds and research interests to delve deep into the forefront of AI-powered language education. Participants will actively engage in interactive sessions, exploring tools such as chatbots, virtual tutors, and automated assessments. Our three-panel sessions, each encompassing 20-minute practical discussions, will unfold the multifaceted applications and potentials of AI in language instruction. With insights from educators across all member institutions and guest contributions from some external instructors, this workshop promises a holistic look at the present and future of language education. Join us to pioneer the next chapter of AI-enhanced language learning and teaching!
