Hiroshima JALT:

Project-based Learning in ESL

Date: Thursday, November 29th, 2007 Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Speaker: Arifa Rahman, Dhaka University, Bangladesh

Encouraging learners to undertake projects in the English classroom on a variety of topics while using a range of resources provides opportunities for experiential learning. It puts the cognitive and the affective aspects of the learning process into gear. There is learner engagement, interaction and collaboration, and more importantly, self-directed action. This leads to the development of inquiry and the facilitation of autonomous learning, engaging the learner at a higher level of cognitive development.

Dr. Arifa Rahman is Professor of English Language and Teacher Education at Dhaka University, Bangladesh. With experience in course design, materials development, teaching, administration and research, she has several publications to her credit. Her interests are teacher development, materials writing and classroom-based research. Dr. Rahman has a PhD from the Institute of Education, University of London and is currently serving a second term as President of the Bangladesh English Language Teachers Association (BELTA).
