British Council – ELTons webinars: Winner of the Eltons Award for Excellence in Course Innovation
This webinar is a part in a series of webinars showcasing ideas from the 2014 ELTons winning innovations. Here we present the 2014 winner of the Eltons Award for Excellence in Course Innovation. Using example materials and tasks from the DysTEFL project, Judit Kormos and Joanna Nijakowska outline which methods of classroom management, task design and teaching techniques can empower dyslexic language learners to fulfil their potential in language learning.
Dyslexic language learners have been long neglected in the field of language teaching despite the fact they constitute about ten percent of the student population. In this webinar we introduce the award-winning language teacher training course developed in the framework of the DysTEFL project. The course is built on the model of the teacher as a reflective practitioner, who experiments with new learner-centred teaching methodologies, creatively adapts teaching methods, tasks and techniques to his/her context and then reflects on the outcomes of the learning and teaching processes.
