3rd Kraków Language Teaching Staff Training Week Jagiellonian Language Centre, Jagiellonian University Kraków, 3rd- 7th July 2023

This year’s Language Teaching Staff Training Week is concerned with questions which we are currently trying to address, and “currently” means AFTER the pandemic, WHILE observing the dynamic job market awaiting our students and BEFORE artificial intelligence replaces us altogether (but will it ever?). After all isn’t it a language teacher’s job to draw on past experience, try to understand the present and predict the future?

We look forward to exchanging views on problems and solutions. Let’s share teaching experience, good practice and useful strategies, methods and materials. Let’s talk about the future needs of our students. Let’s take a closer look at what quality teaching means when technology not only helps students to learn but can also replace learning itself (but can it really?).
