 Daniel Xerri small Daniel Xerri - 'A Myriad Views on Creativity'

Date and Time:

3 December 2016, 3pm GMT (click on link to find the time for your location)

Abstract:

Over the past few decades, creativity seems to have increasingly filtered into educational discourse. Despite the burgeoning popularity of the term in language learning and teaching, conceptions of creativity are highly varied and at times conflicting. In this webinar we will explore some of the most common views on creativity and how these can help inform classroom practices.

Bio:

Daniel Xerri teaches on the MA TESOL at the Centre for English Language Proficiency, University of Malta. He is the Joint Co-ordinator of the IATEFL Research SIG and the Chairperson of the ELT Council in Malta. He holds a PhD in Education from the University of York.
