Numerous further education offers for the classroom

How can digital media be used in reading lessons and what role does ChatGPT play in the training of foreign language teachers? On Wednesday, 13 September, the annual Foreign Language Day will take place at Paderborn University from 9 am to 4 pm. Numerous lectures, workshops and an exhibition of teaching materials will address current topics in modern foreign language teaching in English, Spanish and French.
