NILE was delighted to support the FAAPI conference in Posadas, Argentina, this September by offering a scholarship for the face-to-face MA module Materials Development in Language Teaching which takes place at AEXALEVI in Buenos Aires this coming February. The module is part of NILE’s MA in Professional Development for Language Education. The applications were blind-judged by a panel of NILE MA trainers, and we are very pleased to announce that Romina Arena has been awarded the scholarship!
Johanna Stirling, tutor on the Materials Development module in February, says
Romina’s background in teaching English for Specific Purposes (electronics and electricity) offers an alternative approach to the process of materials design to the classic L2 English teaching and we believe that this, along with her experience as a university teacher makes her a great asset to the course.
Romina herself comments:
I feel extremely grateful and honoured to have been awarded this scholarship, which I am sure will broaden my professional horizon with regards to materials design - a key aspect of my job, both as a teacher and teacher assistant at university level. Learning is a continuous journey, and I am very excited to set out towards a new destination!
We are pleased to be able to offer all APIBA, Lengua Vivas and AEXALEVI members a 10% discount on the MA module Materials Development for Language Teaching course fee at AEXALEVI in 2018. Please contact us for further information on this or the MA programme in general.
