    Challenges and Opportunities for Teaching German in the 21st Century

    We are teaching students who have been exposed to technology since the cradle, and with this comes new challenges. As educators we are constantly faced with the task of engaging students less willing to accept the repetition and hard-work necessary for successful language acquisition. This, in addition to an over-crowded curriculum, a narrow perception of the value of language learning, dropping senior numbers coupled with the difficulty in achieving top marks in comparison to other subjects, are just some of the challenges faced by the language teacher in South Australia in the 21st century.

    However, we know that learning languages has many benefits, it builds up our social competence; it expands our view of the world and respect for its diverse peoples and cultures and builds valuable skills for the new flexible and mobile world of employment.  We need to find new and innovative ways to engage our learners by providing opportunities in bilingual and CLIL programmes, by stronger connections with the Goethe-Institut, university and industry.  We need to lift the profile of language programmes through language days or weeks, participation in exchanges and study tours.  We need to provide our students with the environments in which they can easily  connect with German speakers and with learners worldwide.

     We would like to extend an invitation to all educators to submit papers for consideration that relate to


    • ·       Experiences and new strategies for the learning, teaching and promotion of the   
    •       German language
    • ·       Examples of new initiatives used to connect the classroom to the global world.
    • ·       Connecting primary, secondary and tertiary teaching, industry and learning
    •       communities with each other and community organisations.
    • ·       Technology and learner networks across schools, cities and countries
    • ·       Research relating to German cultural connections
    • ·       Multiculturalism and multilingualism: Preserving language/preserving culture

    Please consider offering a session, sharing a presentation with another teacher or encouraging a colleague to contribute to the 2019 State Conference. 

    Due Date: May 3 2019
