MaWSIG: Practical tools and tricks of the trade: sharing our expertise
For this year’s PCE we’re organising a day packed with practical advice from experts in all areas of ELT materials writing.
Most materials writers, whether new or experienced, writing full-time or producing materials to supplement a coursebook, are continually developing skills and discovering new tools and innovative ways of working. But this is usually done in isolation with few, if any, opportunities for sharing what we know. Imagine how useful it would be to get a bunch of us together with other colleagues from the field – editors, illustrators, designers and project managers – to talk about how we do things and to share the tricks and tools that help us do things better. That might involve talking about how to write a really good artwork brief, discussing the best ways of liaising with a team of co-writers, sharing ideas for how to improve efficiency using digital tools or learning how to ensure quality in the materials we create.
This year’s PCE will do exactly that.
We are setting up an opportunity for all those interested in materials development to tap into expertise, learn from people who know things they don’t, share and discuss ideas, compare ways of working, ask and answer questions, and create together a rewarding learning experience for all. Through a combination of practical presentations and workshops, break-out discussions and a Q&A spot, participants will go away with ideas for updating their personal ‘toolkit’ and a clear vision of how to do their job more efficiently and effectively.
