Enacting quality pedagogies: what this looks like in the language learning context

Join us at the NEAS Management Conference, 11-12 May 2017 at Daltone House, Sydney, to hear Dr Madonna Stinson present on her research around enacting quality pedagogies: what this looks like in a language learning context. In this conference keynote presentation, Dr Stinson draws on recent research in language teaching and learning to determine what constitutes best practice within the language classroom. She will share ideas about teaching characteristics and approaches which contribute to a culture of quality in language learning contexts, and suggest means of helping students prepare for the “coughs and hesitations” of communication in the real world.

Dr Madonna Stinson is Senior Lecturer in the School of Education and Professional Studies for the Arts, Education and Law Academic Group, Griffith University. Her research and teaching concentrates on creative approaches to curriculum and pedagogies, in particular with regard to drama and language learning. She is particularly interested in methodologies and processes that allow researchers to consider how we know and understand what is happening in the spaces between teaching and learning.
