Thinking, feeling and creating: A reflection on ELT teaching materials development - Jennifer MacDougall
In this online forum, I’ll explore practicalities and principles of developing materials for English language teaching and training. I’ll draw upon my career and my life, describing how what I have learned and the people I have met have influenced my practice. During the session, I’ll provide some top tips (or rather thoughts) on materials design, illustrating my ideas with worked examples.
We’ll focus on why representation, inclusion and diversity really matter and how this principle can be channelled through the choices we make. We’ll also consider the non-neutral nature of what we produce. I’ll then invite participants to explore and discuss their own experiences and practices in order to co-create additional tips for approaching the design of ESOL materials.
