ELT well: Dyslexia and language learning – CPD opportunities

Three short workshops concerning dyslexia and language learning  are running in Leeds on Thursday May 11th organized by ELT well:

Raising Awareness of Specific Learning Differences (SpLDs)   (practical ways of helping students, their peers and their tutors to understand the challenges of SpLDs, and so build a more inclusive learning environment)

Memory strategies for language learners (techniques that students can use to become more effective language learners)

Phonological awareness for multilingual learners (an exploration of some aspects of phonology which are not usually covered in phonics sessions, but which EAL/ESOL learners may need to pay attention to).

Furthermore in June there will be a whole week of CPD in Lancaster, covering a range of topics not usually found elsewhere, such as working with beginners, encouraging reluctant learners, adapting published materials to make them more accessible for dyslexic learners, and working with International students in HEIs. This week will finish with the annual free event: the Research Round-up on Saturday 10th June.
