Innovative sustainable online language teaching – social media and the adult EAL/D classroom

Webinar Wednesday 24 March 2021 4pm – 5 pm (Qld time)






As Southern Cross University’s English Language Programs (ELP) for international students have moved from emergency remote teaching mode towards a more sustainable online model (Hodges, Moore, Lockee, Trust & Bond, 2020), we have started to explore some innovative approaches to teaching and learning. We are now offering not just EAP and General English units online but also study tours, and increasingly using educational apps and social media to keep our online classes relevant and engaging.

This presentation will share some of the possible uses of WeChat,  (Wei, 2017), WhatsApp and education apps including Quizlet and Padlet in the delivery of online English language lessons.


Sharon Leslie, Neil McRuddin and Zoe Hancock
