An overview of TELLConsult recent  Erasmus+ Project activities

During this year’s spring and summer we spent most of our time on dissemination activities for a number of projects we participate in including REDESIGN, TABLIO (on classroom differentiation supported with mobile devices), “Designing and Evaluating Innovative Mobile Pedagogies” (DEIMP) and Computer Assisted Training And Platforms to Upskill LSP Teachers (CATAPULT).

We were actively involved in TABLIO’s final project phase focussing on dissemination. We attended the national Multiplier Event sessions organised by TABLIO’s Dutch partner iXperium in Nijmegen.

At TELLConsult we were responsible for the 3-day international version of this event to be run at PXL University in Hasselt, Belgium. But, regrettably, we had to cancel it due to limited registrations, this despite the prolonged and intense promotion campaign on social media and direct mailing to TELLConsult’s contacts. (more details and activities here) 

Ìn May 2019 TELLConsult was in Crakow (Poland) for a meeting of the project CATAPULT and as invited speaker to the bi-annual PL-CALL Conference we contributed a workshop on mobile learning introducing the key outputs of the TABLIO and DEIMP projects. (more info here)


In June 2019 TELLConsult partner Ton Koenraad contributed both a paper presentation and a DEIMP workshop as invited speaker to REDESIGN’s final conference “The Implementation of Technology in Second/Foreign Language Learning: Past, Current and Future Ventures” at the University of Cyprus.


Find out about details about these and other events following the links to blogposts listed in this summary page.

Furthermore, as Dutch representative of the European Association of Computer Assisted Language Learning – (EUROCALL) and member of the committee of its Special Interest Group on Mobile Assisted Language Learning (MALL)  TELLConsult Course director Ton Koenraad contributed to the organisation of the SIG’s annual event, this year the symposium ‘CALLmi: Where are we going’ at Milan University  (find more details here)
