Task-Based Learning Remastered

  • Session C

Presenter(s): Neil McCutcheon

In this workshop, I aim to introduce briefly the task-based approach for teachers who are not familiar with it, and to review the advantages of adopting an analytic task-based syllabus (where possible) or simply of introducing more task-based procedures into general English lessons. I will recap briefly the history of TBLT, and define what a task is; and show how TBLT is supported by key principles from SLA theory. The audience will be involved in at least one of the tasks from my forthcoming book so that they can have some direct experience of the approach.
