In this interactive CPD webinar co-hosted by NALDIC, Dr Naomi Flynn (Chair of the Events Committee, NALDIC & Associate Professor, University of Reading) joined Dr Lisa-Maria Muller (Education Research Manager, Chartered College of Teaching) to talk through some principles of effective teaching for EAL learners, and some practical strategies that are relatable for teachers in different contexts. Drawing on her research and practical experiences working with teachers in linguistically diverse settings, Naomi showcased examples of strategies from classrooms where teachers are committed to a talk-rich environment in which their EAL learners can thrive. Participants were then split into breakout groups after the initial presentations to discuss the ideas in their own context with other participants. This event was part of a series of webinars for members we are running throughout this academic year.
