Affectivity in Online Teaching

Emotions play an important role in all types of learning and, when it comes to a foreign language, it is a decisive factor that stimulates the learner’s approach to the target language and culture. Arnold and Brown (2000, p. 19) state that the affective dimension of learning completes the cognitive one. Thus, the two coexist since, as LeDoux (1996: 39) points out, the mind cannot be perceived without emotions.

In the present study, our aim is to approach the problems posed by the online teaching of foreign languages and how it affects students´emotions. Our methodology will be based on a contrastive study between the satisfaction surveys of the students who took the French language course before and during the COVID-19 pandemic to verify how the online teaching methology has affected students´ academic performance and motivation.

In conclusion, we are going to establish the main parameters that intervene in the online teaching of a foreign language and that are closely related to cognitive and affective learning strategies. Finally, we will make some suggestions in order to improve the results of virtual learning and increase students´emotional awareness.

      Dear Adamantía Zerva,

      It has been a pleasure to watch your presentation and especially listen to your great English pronunciation. I am really surprised about the results and the differences between face-to-face and online learning. Therefore, it would be interesting to know about the sample (number of participants) and if the differences are statistically significant. Have you made a t-test or t-student to prove that difference?

      Thank you in advance,

      Best regards,

        Dear Jon Altuna Urdin,
        Thank you very much for your interest in my study and your kind words. I´m afraid my English could be improved.
        Regarding your question, the number of participants in each sample was very similar but, unfortunaltely, I didn´t think of applying a t-test.
        Thank you for your recommendation that I will take into consideration in future research.
        Best regards,
        Adamantía

      Dear Adamantía Zerva,
      Thank you very much for your presentation. I really think that affectivity in teaching is an important topic, specially in covid time. According your conclusion, the educational system does not promote emotional devopment and it is necessary to develop teacher traning programs. From your point of view, what kind of features do these training programs have?
      Best rgards,
      Arkaitz

        Dear Arkaitz,
        Thank you very much for your interest in my study and your question.
        I believe that teacher training programs should show some strategies in order to encourage student-teacher interaction. According to me, teachers must be aware of students´ feelings and emotional situation to meet learners needs better. A pleasant classroom atmosphere is essential for students to learn and interact with their mates and their teacher.
        Thank you very much.
        Best regards,
        Adamantía

      Estimada Adamantía,

      Un tema muy interesante y de relevancia en la actualidad. Mi enhorabuena.

      El acercamiento al alumnado me ha permitido constatar que las fases de aislamiento absoluto y el aislamiento social ha afectado de manera muy intensa. En algunos de estos casos he podido observar una clara dificultar para gestionar las emociones que toda la situación provoca (angustia, ansiedad, apatía). Por ello, considero necesario acercarme al análisis de las emociones en el contexto de mi disciplina (Ciencias Sociales). En este sentido, quería preguntarle si existen trabajos o manuales de referencia sobre cómo investigar en términos científicos, las emociones (de mis estudiantes), con objeto de poder adaptarlas a investigaciones en el contexto de mi docencia.

      Gracias de antemano.

      Atentamente,
      Daniel Martínez

        Estimado Daniel:
        Le agradezco mucho su interés hacia mi estudio y su pregunta.
        Hay varios artículos publicados en revistas especializadas que tratan las emociones y la enseñanza. Puede encontrar algunos en la base de datos Redalyc ( https://www.redalyc.org/) que recoge gran parte de los trabajos publicados.
        Muchas gracias de nuevo.
        Un saludo cordial,
        Adamantía

      Dear Adamantía Zerva,
      Thanks for your presentation. I have a question regarding the use of the data that you have gathered. Are you planning to use this data to design interventions that would motivate students? Best regards, María
