LANG was created in 1999.
The group's primary focus was on advancing research
and technology integration in language teaching as various
multimedia centres were built on campus. It was established
to play an advisory role to the Multimedia Centres
Director (Paul Ruppert) and the Multimedia Centres
Management Committee to facilitate the integration of
IT and New Media in the language departments.
The advisory group's goal
was to create synergies and promote networking between
the language departments regarding teaching with new
technologies. Moreover, the group planned to play an
advisory role on other issues such as testing and rethinking
of teaching and learning spaces as they arose.
