English Language Teaching and Research (ELTR) Workshops

 

The English Language Teaching and Research (ELTR) workshops are delivered by invited high-calibre practitioners and/or researchers in Applied Linguistics and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).  Aimed at pre- and in-service teachers of English, these practical workshops are an opportunity to engage in continuous professional development at no cost.  While most of the attendees are affiliated with the University of Stirling, the events are open to all students and colleagues at other institutions (e.g. schools, colleges, universities, NGOs).  If you would like to attend a specific workshop and/or receive first-hand announcements of upcoming workshops, please e-mail your details (i.e. name, e-mail address, affiliation and role) to socsciresearch@stir.ac.uk.
