Keith Harding - From ELT to TLE
Thursday, November 26, 2015 11:00:00 AM GMT - 12:00:00 PM GMT
This session looks at ways of making the most of the learning opportunities that lie beyond the classroom. It incorporates recent concepts such as ‘online learning’, ‘blended learning’ and ‘the flipped classroom’, but is also firmly based on more established ELT orthodoxies. It offers a new approach and methodology: the ‘Total Learning Experience’ (TLE). The idea behind TLE is simple: every environment you find yourself in is a learning environment, every experience is a learning experience. The classroom is one such environment, and although it is a very important one, we are missing an enormous opportunity if we do not exploit the learning environment beyond. Most teachers and language teaching organisations are aware of this potential, but how effective are they at bridging the gap between what happens in the classroom and the vast pool of learning resources beyond?
