MaWSIG PCE 2022: Exploring dichotomies, bridging gaps and joining the dots

Join IATEFL Materials Writing SIG for their 2022 Pre-Conference Event on 16 May.

Following on from our successful PCE in 2021, and maintaining its practical approach, the MaWSIG PCE 2022 will explore the various stages that materials travel through on their way to the classroom. Does the route involve bridgeable gaps, or dots we can work to join up more effectively? We’ll be discussing some of the key questions and dichotomies that can crop up along the way. For example:

  • What shapes ELT materials more: market demand, pedagogical theory, or research?
  • What are the obstacles to making materials inclusive?
  • What are the constraints that affect the journey of materials from the initial concept to final product? 
  • Is it possible to self-publish successfully without the marketing forces of a publishing company behind you?
  • Writing materials for our own classroom: how do teachers ensure quality and fit?

Our PCE will include both stimulating talks and time for discussion, as well as plenty of opportunities for reflection and networking.
