Blended Learning in English Language Teaching: Course Design and Implementation

Blended learning is an area of ELT that continues to be of interest to practitioners in the field. Despite this, little can be found in the literature on blended learning course design or detailed descriptions provided of blends used in ELT contexts. This publication, which contains twenty case studies from around the world, addresses this deficit by illustrating blends being employed on EAP, ESP, Teacher Development and general EFL courses.

 

Nik Peachey's insight:

Very proud to have written one of the case studies (pages 65 -75) for this book. It explores the award winning Blended Learning in ELT teacher training course I designed for Bell Educational Services.

Gust MEES's curator insight, January 14, 2013 9:19 AM

I tested it as English isn't my mother tongue to improve my writing and I like especially the opening help window while clicking the highlighted errors. It reminds me the lost knowledge over the years and so I can refresh it.

Communica8GH's curator insight, January 14, 2013 6:37 PM

More in-depth than typical word processing. Has some prAACtical applications for sure.

Excerpt From My Book On Teaching English Language Learners | Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day… | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it

Written by an award-winning practitioner, English Language Learners: Teaching Strategies that Work offers educators a five-step methodology for teaching this burgeoning population. Rather than viewing these students through the typical lens of “deficits” they might have, the process helps educators recognize and use the assets ELLs bring to the classroom.

CristinaSkyBox: Writing Skills, Diaries & Timelines

CristinaSkyBox: Writing Skills, Diaries & Timelines | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it

As a language learner, I was fortunate to have always learnt a language with the same script. I needed words and learnt them. I needed to communicate and so I practiced speaking. I was asked to write and I stumbled - for every language has its own peculiar writing culture.


It is with the thought of own students in mind that I include this post on writing. My students will be taking an international exam which will include writing. Their own native tongue uses a different script and English is not much used in their lives outside the classroom. Many succeed this exam. Some don't at first. Writing is no simple task in any language, let alone in a foreign language such as English.
