The workshop was attended by lecturers of English department, Information System and Chinese Department of Binus university .  As a start, Ibu Eunice brought the discussion toward 21st century learning and the characteristics of  iGen. The topic sparked immediate responses from the participants as most felt that the illustrations made were closely related to the participants’ experiences. In the early part of the workshop, everyone seemed to agree that ” in the 21st century, we don’t  teach English, we teach them how to learn (English), instead”.

From there, the workshop  flowed interactively. Our speaker led the discussion further to TPACK ( Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge), Teachers’ roles, and tips & tricks in using technology in language and literature classes.

The highlight of the workshop was when Bu Eunice asked our lecturers to try out some newly-introduced apps to be integrated in their classes. Some came out with interesting projects. In her closing remark,  Ibu Risa R. Simanjuntak, Head of English Department, convinced all English lecturers to involve more technology in the future.
