The Largest Multiplier Event of the DIGITASK4IC Project, 7-9 September, 2022, Barcelona

DIGITASK4IC team organized the largest multiplier event of the project through a series of events across three days with national and international participants. The event was organized by DIGITASK4IC researchers from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and attracted more than 100 practicioners. By the end of the event, the DIGITASK web app reached a total user count of 436 task designers/teachers and 534 students. Also, at the web app, there are currently 910 tasks, 112 task sequnces, and 2287 task materials available for free/open use through CC licensing.

We would like to thank the teaching/research community who showed great interest in the features of the DIGITASK web app and helped us see the impact of our project towards the end of the project timeline. Parts of the event series also coincided with the Interactional Competences and Practices in a Second Language, ICOP-L2 Interactional Conference. In addition to the UAB team’s dissemination activities, two DIGITASK4IC researchers presented their research projects based on the DIGITASK web app. The conference audience, paper presentations, workshop, dissemination activities, and the social gatherings helped the project team better evaluate the “Interactional Competence” relevant research prospects of the DIGITASK web app in addition to the its practical outcomes for “Task Based Language Teaching” in line with the project title, Digitizing Pedagogical Task Design for Interactional Competence.
