Next week, in fact in just under a week, I’ll be at IATEFL giving a short talk on experimental practice. The details are as follows:
Date: Wednesday 10 April 2013
Time: 17.10 – 17.40
Venue: Liverpool ACC, Hall 14
Title: Exploratory practice in ELT: an opportunity to develop yourself
Here is the abstract from the conference brochure:
ELT is big. From grammar translation to communicative approaches, pen and paper to video, choral drills to dictogloss, it is a vast territory to explore. Yet would many teachers say they do actively explore it? This talk will report on examples of experimental practice completed by DELTA trainees and encourage others to take steps to explore their own practice.
You can also read a teaser for an idea that became this talk here. You can also read about my own experimental practice (completed as part of my DELTA course) here (I’d really appreciate any comments you might have!).
Look forward to seeing people in Liverpool! =)
