QLS in Brisbane almost here!


Friday 1 March 2019, 10.00am-1.00pm

349 Queen St (James Cook University building). BRISBANE, QLD 4000

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 unravel 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.
