How to Write ELT Activities for Authentic Video and Film

with Kieran Donaghy

Saturday, 3rd November 2018

14.00 - 17.00

Alte Feuerwache - großes Forum

Melchiorstraße 3, 50670 Köln

In this workshop we will look at how new and more experienced writers can write
effective and engaging video and film activities for ELT. We will look at:

- why video and film are becoming increasingly important in language learning

- examples of best practice in ELT video and film activities 

- methods to help writers create materials that engage students in active learning, with a focus on exploitation of not just linguistic features of moving image texts, but also visual and cultural elements

- what to look for when previewing suitable videos for class, websites and books. 

Participants will watch short films and videos, and work in small groups to create their own activities designed around them.
