What is best practice in language teaching?

Clyde Fowle

What is ‘best practice’ in language teaching? Trends, fads and new approaches come in and out of fashion. This workshop will begin by trying to establish what teachers believe is good, reliable classroom practice. Ideas about what teachers look for in materials for adult learners will also be explored, and participants will be given the opportunity to evaluate materials from recently published courses for adult learners to see how well they meet their expectations. Teachers will leave the workshop with ideas on what ‘best practice’ means for them and ideas on how they can work towards this in their own classrooms.
