About Creating ELT Materials 2020

What participants will learn in the course.

About the course

Participants start the course by learning about the principles of materials development. They discover what makes materials effective and good and they examine a suggested framework for materials writing.

At the same time, from the beginning of the course, participants start building a portfolio of materials that can: (a) be used immediately with their own students (b) be easily adapted to use with other students.

Teachers will be encouraged to use the materials they make and, through a series of reflection activities, evaluate their effectiveness and explore ways to improve them or adapt them to use in other contexts. They will also be invited to join in a valuable peer evaluation scheme, sharing advice and commenting on materials.
