Where do new ideas come from?

Date and Time: 
Friday, 28 November 2014 - 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Speaker: 
Alan Maley

In my 40 years in ELT, I cannot recall a time when ‘new ideas’ was not on the agenda! (Maley 2005). I shall suggest five possible sources for such new ideas. I shall also suggest that this search, though it may ultimately lead to dead ends, has an important motivational and developmental function for teachers and trainers.
