Speaker: 
Greg Goodmacher, Keiwa College professor (Shibata, Niigata) & freelance writer
Event Date: 
Saturday, April 16, 2016

Greg Goodmacher enjoys writing and sharing materials. The co-author of a number of textbooks, he led an attentive audience through a series of discussions and activities related to the various aspects of teaching materials, and how best to adapt them for optimum classroom use. Some areas to consider when adapting materials are personalisation, localisation, modernisation, adding choice, catering for various learner styles, providing more learner autonomy, encouraging higher level cognitive skills, and making language input more engaging, among other elements. Memory tasks were also focussed upon. The presentation concluded with teachers assisting other teachers in their endeavours to make textbooks more relevant and accessible to all stakeholders.
