Language Teaching: Learning from the Past
This project draws on research in the History of Language Learning and Teaching (HoLLT) to inform language teaching practice and policy. Taking five key themes of immediate relevance to teaching practice today, the project responds to evidence that teachers benefit from the framework that HoLLT gives them to reflect on and critique their own and others' practice and policy.
Our materials translate research into packages tailored to the needs of practising teachers, making explicit links to their current and future roles. The materials are designed to be used without expert input, so that they can be widely used and embedded in training.
Each package is made up of a:
- short video
- Participant handbook - examples from the video, additional examples, questions for discussion
- Instructor handbook - guidance on how to use the materials, additional information and guidance to help you lead discussion
These materials are available on a trial basis piloting and feedback and are not the final published versions.
We hope you find them useful and would be grateful for your feedback. Please let us know your views on these materials by filling in our survey.
