TLC Piloting Event

Language Networks for Excellence at the University of Wolverhampton hosted an information and piloting session on Thursday 28th November, 2013 at TLC College in Wolverhampton, offering its guests a complimentary lunch and insight into the first stage of the resource development.

The event focussed on introducing the Languages in Media’ (LiMe) project; developing language skills and cultural understanding through the use of media such as TV soaps and music videos. The scope of the project is to assist migrant learners by providing them with online tools to decode language and culture as portrayed in various types of media and the event invited 18 teachers and numerous students of the college to trial the first resource which was a movie trailer.

The event opened at 12 noon with sandwiches and refreshments, followed by a project brief and resource trial from 1 – 3.30pm, led by Angela Molinari, Head of Language Networks for Excellence.

Following the testing, the teachers, associated partners and students were invited to discuss the newly created resource, leading to important feedback, which was used to further improve and develop the resource bank.
