We will be hosting a series of dissemination events as part of the English Language Teaching Research Mentoring Scheme (ELTRMS)

ELTRMS was an award scheme in 2019-20 for Indian academics and researchers in the field of English Language Teaching (ELT). The areas of focus were:

  • Assessment (of English and 21st-century skills)
  • Harnessing technology for the teaching and learning of English (online / MOOCs / self-access / blended)
  • English for specific purposes and 21st-century skills for employability
  • Teacher education and development
  • Inclusive education practices for the teaching and learning of English
  • Using multilingual practices for the teaching and learning of English

Join researcher groups as they share their research projects and associated findings. These events are for teachers, teacher educators, researchers, academics and education officials interested in ELT, particularly the areas listed above.
