This interactive workshop, led by Carmen Becker and Annika Albrecht, will start with a short survey through which participants reflect their own learning spaces for foreign language learning. Participants will then gain an insight into the authentic foreign language development of a case study; this will serve as a basis for subsequent reflection in small groups on the subject of learning landscapes where participants will exchange ideas about how they perceive the learning landscapes of their learners and generate ideas to integrate these into their own contexts.
