This workshop sheds light on aesthetic engagement – those aha! moments in the language learning classroom, when international students of English have an academic, emotional, intellectual or artistic breakthrough in their language learning as a result of their participation in Drama in ELT.
Research and best practice unravels these moments of heightened aesthetic engagement in the classroom; explores what they are and how they contribute to language learning. Using process drama pedagogy in TESOL, the research explores how students in a process drama become aesthetically engaged and the implication of such engagement on learning.
This workshop is interactive and explores practical ideas for innovative teaching.
