Task-based language teaching in foreign language contexts: Ortega 2012

Task-based language teaching in foreign  language contexts: Ortega 2012 | TELT | Scoop.it

This link will download a PDF of slides from a 2012 plenary by Lourdes Ortega on task-based teaching.

Shona Whyte's insight:

At 155 slides, there's probably more than you'll ever need to know about TBLT - definitions, theory (Long, Pica), implementations (Norris, Van den Branden), criticisms, (Littlewood, Swan), modifications and new rationales (holistic learning, as a response to Abbott or Medgyes's notion of TENOR).  Really great overview with detailed analysis and references.
