The 7th Annual ShCT ELT Workshop
Current Trends in ELT : Exploring Possibilities
April 16, 2015
About the workshop
Welcome to the Seventh Annual ShCT ELT Workshop - 2015. This exclusive workshop is one of the regular and valuable sources of professional growth for language teachers in the Colleges of Technology in Oman. The workshop will seize the opportunity to address the needs and issues related to ongoing professional development of language teachers, practitioners and researchers at all levels and contexts. Also, the unique driving force of this year’s workshop is to bring together the ELT fraternity to discuss and share research, theory and best practices and to initiate and sustain a meaningful professional dialogue across language, level and settings.
Current Trends in ELT: Exploring Possibilities
The theme of this year’s workshop will highlight the rich diversity of the ever-changing trends in ELT, and the range of contexts in which it is practiced in the Colleges of Technology in Oman. In most of the colleges today, language teachers are expected to keep up to date with developments in the field of ELT according to the ever changing demands of the job market. The teachings of other subjects such as Math, Physics, etc. have by and large remained the same, but coming back to the ELT tradition, it has been subjected to tremendous changes especially throughout the twentieth century. This period has over and over again been referred to as “The Age of Methods” during which a number of quite detailed prescriptions for language teaching were proposed. Again, practitioners of ELT will take charge of the opportunities to try out new practices about many aspects of current trends in ELT.
