The Role of Intrinsic Reward and metacognition on Language Learning

Language.  New York,  03/05/2019

LAIC is home to many linguists and language specialists who are active researchers and well-known references in fields related to Second Language Acquisition, Applied Linguistics, Language Pedagogy, or Teacher Training, among many others. This monthly workshop series is aimed at the Professional Development of our lecturers and anyone at LAIC interested in language pedagogy. The goal of the workshops is to enhance the development of our Language Programs (Spanish, Catalan, and Portuguese) by presenting, discussing, and debating pedagogical approaches to foreign language teaching within Columbia/Barnard classes.




Antoni Rodriguez-Fornells is a Research Professor at the Catalan Institution for Research and Advanced Studies (ICREA) (currently visiting scholar at Columbia Zuckerman Institute, Mind, Brain and Behavior). His research focuses on the neural mechanisms underlying language learning. His talk will be devoted to his study of motivation in language learning, which has surprising implications for language teaching and learning.
