Upcoming IATEFL webinar dates

iatefl-logo.jpgLater this week and in the coming months, here are some IATEFL webinar dates to pencil into your diary.

Claudia Ferradas PhD - 'Reading across cultures: literature for intercultural awareness'; 31 August 2013, 3pm BST


In a context of growing intercultural communication, reading and responding to texts in which cultures come into contact can help us develop intercultural awareness, as the encounter with otherness can encourage reflection on how meanings can be communicated across cultures. This webinar explores texts written in English in which intercultural encounters are highlighted and proposes activities and resources for the classroom which aim at developing the linguistic repertoire necessary to express our own meanings in English.


Claudia Ferradas is an experienced presenter and ELT author based in Argentina who travels the world as a teacher educator. Among many international presentations, she was the closing plenary speaker at the IATEFL conference in Cardiff in 2009. She is a lecturer in advanced language and literature at teacher training and translation programmes and has been in charge of MA seminars and research supervision in Argentina, Spain and the UK. Claudia works as a consultant for the British Council and has co-chaired the Oxford Conference on the Teaching of Literature on five occasions. She has also worked as Project Manager for the Penguin Active Readers Teacher Support Programme
