SATEFL event and AGM in Glasgow – 3rd March

The next SATEFL event is taking place at the University of Glasgow again, along with the AGM. The event is supported by Oxford University Press, who is providing the speaker for the day and will be present with a book stall and representative.

We are very pleased to have Stacey Holliday Hughes talk at our event. Stacey is a part-time lecturer at Oxford Brookes University and also works freelance as a teacher developer, materials writer and educational consultant in ELT. She has taught English in the US, Poland, Italy and the UK in many different contexts. She also taught French and Spanish. As a teacher developer, she enjoys engaging with teachers from all over the world. She has recently run an introduction to teacher training course for the Oxford Department of Education Summer School. Stacey has written a number of blogs, online student exercises and teacher support materials. She gained her Master’s degree in Applied Linguistics and TESOL in 1993.

After a short break,  Dangeni, who is currently working on her PhD at the University of Glasgow, will talk about her research topic, ‘an in-depth investigation of challenges Chinese students face in British higher education’ and would like to hear what you think.

Speaking in context: Research has shown that teaching grammar in context facilitates learning of structures. In addition to using context for presenting grammar, teachers can extend the context to help students use English for oral communication. This talk presents practical ways teachers can contextualise language in order for students to practice meaningful speaking.
