The NILE-APIBA scholarship winner is Carlos Reynoso!
Earlier this year, when announcing the next face-to-face module of NILE’s MA programme at AEXALEVI in Buenos Aires, NILE and APIBA got together to offer one APIBA member a scholarship to the Materials Development in Language Teaching, part of NILE’s MA in Professional Development for Language Education. The applications have been submitted and evaluated, and we are delighted to award Carlos Reynoso a place on the programme!
The judges’ expect Carlos’ research in designing authentic tasks for the exploitation of authentic texts and cultural products in the language classroom to be of valuable input during the module and the following assignment. They also believe that his presentation for other APIBA members, a condition of the award, will be of interest and use in the organisation.
Carlos himself comments:
"I am very grateful for this distinction and promise to share with my colleagues all I have learnt - and keep learning - through my research on the design of authentic language learning materials."
The applications were blind- judged by a panel of NILE MA trainers. Johanna Stirling, tutor on the Materials Development module in February, was impressed with the high standard of entries and says she expect it to be a great course if all participants are as high quality as the scholarship applications.
To continue the appreciation of the relationship between NILE and APIBA, we are pleased to be able to offer all APIBA members a 10% discount on the MA module Materials Development for Language Teaching course fee at AEXALEVI in February 2018. Please contact us for further information.
