Click here to sign up and enjoy the work of renowned ESOL guru – Philida Schellekens – talking about Creating effective learning activities in the multi-level classroom, on Thursday 26th September at pm EST,/7pm GMT.
Please note – this is an IATEFL and NATECLA MEMBERS ONLY webinar
In Philida’s session, she will look at the characteristics and contexts that give rise to multi-level language groups and the opportunities and challenges that teachers face. Philida will look at activities that work well and review the advantages and disadvantages of strategies to meet students’ individual needs, aka differentiation. This approach has become very popular and yet is not without its critics. She will also explore what research has to say about differentiation and apply John Hattie’s meta-analysis on the most effective strategies to multi-level teaching.
Philida Schellekens is an independent consultant, researcher and teacher trainer in the field of language learning and teaching, particularly English language provision for migrants and refugees. More widely, she also provides consulting in EFL, foreign languages, interpreting and translation, and the communication skills of first language English speakers. Philida is an associate inspector in adult and further education and teaches English part-time at Greenwich Community College, both of which enable her to maintain her perspective on – and direct contact with – language learning at all levels.

The 6th annual round-up of research in the field where language learning (multilingualism) overlaps with neurodiversity / SpLDs is going to be held on Saturday 12th October this year, at the ELT well office in Morecambe.
This is a free event that offers an opportunity to researchers, especially those undertaking small-scale projects, to share their findings in a friendly, informal forum.
If you would like to share your latest research findings, or know somebody who would, please have a look at the information and booking form attached. Virtual presentations are also welcome, for those researchers who are not able to travel to the UK / Morecambe that day.
It would be great to see you there to participate in the discussions, too, even if you do not wish to present this time.
