What works and what doesn't in ELT

A workshop with Russell Mayne

I will discuss how we know what works and what doesn't work when we teach and how our ideas become accepted as best practice. I will consider, amongst other sources of good practice, research, academic opinion, and experience before sharing with us what educational research tells us really works.

Russell is a tutor in English for academic purposes at the University of Leicester. He has been teaching for over 15 years and has worked in Japan, Taiwan and the UK. Russell has written for Modern English Teacher and ELTGazette on the subjects of learning styles, research in ELT and pseudo-science in English language teaching. He blogs at evidence-based EFL and is interested in research and teacher beliefs in English language teaching.

This workshop will take place on Sunday, 6th of December 2015, at 3pm UK time / 4pm CET.
