GULBENKIAN AND INALCO CONFERENCE INCLUDES AGBU ARMENIAN VIRTUAL COLLEGE

AVC Academic Director Dr. Hasmik Khalapyan presented AVC at the international “Innovations in Education: Challenges in Teaching Western Armenian in the 21st Century” Conference. It was organized by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and INALCO (National Institute of Oriental Languages and Cultures) in Paris, France.

Held on September 21st and 22nd in Paris, the event brought together educators and academics from around the world in an effort to revive and ensure the survival of the Western Armenian language.

In her talk entitled “Information and Communication Technologies in Teaching Western Armenian: The Case of AGBU Armenian Virtual College,” Hasmik Khalapyan spoke about the urgent need to accept the generational discontinuity in learning styles and approach today’s students “on their own terms.” She blended her theoretical findings and statistical information on online learning worldwide, with AVC's experience and practice to argue that technology was the only solution to revive Western Armenian and prevent its extinction.
