You can now see descriptions and take your pick of the 35 Learning Conversations on offer at this year’s Preston Lodge Learning Festival.
Professor Kate Wall will kick off the afternoon by discussing what practitioner enquiry is all about and how we can make it more doable, and then there will be the chance to take part in three Learning Conversations.
If you haven’t registered to attend this year’s Festival, there is still time!

Course Description: My intention is to show a power point which outlines some of the theory of acquiring academic English when it is an additional language.
After that I would lead a discussion about what is best practice with our cohort of EAL students. I am hoping that anybody who wants to participate will have some ideas of what has worked with our EAL learners or where they have found difficulty in adapting the curriculum for them
