Temple University Japan:

Distinguished Lecturer Series (Seminar 2): Current Perspectives on Task-Based Language Teaching

Date: Saturday, February 23rd, 2008 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Rod Ellis (University of Auckland)

Task-based language teaching (TBLT) is currently advocated by a number of SLA researchers but has also been challenged by some teacher educators. This seminar will examine the theoretical bases for TBLT and in so doing will address the criticisms that have been leveled at it. Key issues in the design and implementation of task-based courses will be discussed. Participants in the seminar will be invited to plan a task-based lesson for their own students and consider how they would evaluate the effectiveness of the lesson.

This seminar is part of TUJ's Distinguished Lecturer Series. Note that each seminar is actually 2 days long, apx. 7 hours per day. The first three hours of each seminar are free and open to the public. To attend both days of the weekend seminar costs 12,000 yen for the general public (free for M.Ed. and Ed.D. alumni of Temple University Japan). Please see the TUJ web site for full details.
