Best Practices in Integrating Ai-based Tools in EFL Teaching


In the ever-evolving arena of language education, staying ahead of the curve is unimaginably challenging, particularly in meeting the learners’ needs and interests. Thereby, “the Empowering Best Practices in EFL Teaching Meetings” emerges as a fresh initiative to revive research and pedagogic activities, if not as a beacon of innovation to bring colleagues, MA students and tech enthusiasts under one roof. These meetings are basically meant to take up a space where tradition meets technology, and pedagogy embraces at least the near future.


Main Objectives:

 Apart from charting the course for effective practices, the main concern of this scientific meeting is to explore the realm of Ai-powered tools and platforms in EFL classrooms, and thus set the stage for adopting what goes in accordance with the department’s broad schemes. It additionally aims at promoting collaboration among lecturers, setting an additional asset in the favour of the department’s community. The administrative staff, participants and all collaborators aspire to equip each other with the latest instructional methodologies for personalized teaching experiences and enhanced language acquisition
