Research in ELT

This workshop is for teachers, managers and support staff who would like to learn more about embedding research into their professional practice.

Research to action: supporting teachers supporting test takers

Do you know about all the freely available teacher resources from IDP IELTS? In response to research findings by Phil Chappell et al at Macquarie University, we have developed support tools for both teachers and students to give more visibility on how IELTS Writing and Speaking tests are assessed. Phil’s research highlighted teachers lacked adequate assessment literacy resulting in a marked variation on how IELTS preparation was taught.

Webinar: Artificial Intelligence in Education and Language Assessment

This webinar will look at how artificial intelligence is used in the assessment. In particular how AI can help complete the circle of learning and assessment, giving immediate feedback to students to help make learning more efficient.

We will also discuss the role of the teacher and how AI applications can free up teacher time for more meaningful interaction with their students. We will look to the future to see what further potential AI has to support teaching and learning. We thank PEARSON and David Booth for presenting this webinar. Check out some of their resources at
