abstract

This article calls for more constructive alignment in the DDL (Data-Driven Learning) pratices currently carried out in instructed settings. After a short description of constructive alignment, this study addresses some of the reasons behind the lack of alignment that, in turn, often leads to a lack of uptake and sustainable practices in DDL. Concrete examples of how courses including DDL activities could be better aligned are presented. Solutions to increase sustainability are also proposed; they include the need for terminological simplification and a revision of some language assessment practices. This article also stresses the importance of both actively listening to teachers’ and learners’needs and concretely supporting teachers’ efforts to embrace DDL.
