Chilean EFL teachers’ practices in a subsidised school: A case study

Detalles del evento

Before the EFL class takes place, educational stakeholders and teachers must juggle with various challenges and limitations. For instance, how do school executive boards and teaching teams make decisions about the design of the EFL program? How do teachers design lesson plans and carry out instruction to covey nurturing classroom environments using the available resources to design activities in alignment with the expected outcomes of their teaching units? What is the role of context in teachers’ practices inside the classroom?

The UNAB English Pedagogy Program kindly invites pre-service and in-service EFL teachers across the country to join our webinar on the role of teachers’ beliefs and practices in the construction and implementation of a common view of the language learning and teaching process through a case study in a Chilean subsidised school. The discussion will be led by TESOL experts Carla Palma and Pamela Lara, chaired by Professor Edgardo Aragú, Director of our English Pedagogy Program at Campus Viña del Mar. Participants are encouraged to prepare and ask questions during the webinar.
