Watch a short ex-ante (introductory) video about my session here.

This lightning talk focuses on bringing the Open Educational Resources (OER) into a foreign language classroom at varying levels of proficiency. I will demonstrate my OER dedicated to teaching Russian through poetry by using the most celebrated Russian poems as an example http://russianpoetry.yale.edu/ This project is completely open and easily adaptable to other foreign languages, and it can be used at a variety of academic settings, from traditional classroom setting, to a blended classroom, to an E-learning environment. This OER was developed with a support grant from Yale Center for Language Study and it was nominated for a national award for Best Contribution to Language Pedagogy by the American Association of Teachers of Slavic and East European Languages (AATSEEL). My talk will demonstrate the OER and discuss the rationale for incorporating authentic literary materials in to a foreign-language classroom and its impact on developing learners’ intercultural competence and learning outcomes. It will also describe some learning activities at various levels of language proficiency and learners’ reactions to the project.https://drive.google.com/file/d/1hCv9CJ_BqPo7CJYVSRBs3GfvT3qvnxg0/view?usp=sharing
