Presentation of “The Image in English Language Teaching”

I was delighted to present “The Image in English Language Teaching” at UAB Idiomes Barcelona on Friday 27th October.

“The Image in English Language Teaching” is a groundbreaking book that encourages teachers to approach images as a significant component of communicating in a foreign language, and as a means of fostering students’ communicative competence and creativity. The book urges teachers to use images critically and creatively, as well as encourages students to resist the passivity they might feel towards images by becoming more active viewers and more visually literate.

The book is edited by Daniel Xerri and I, and  features contributions by leading experts in the use of images in language education such as Ben Goldstein, Anna Whitcher, Antonia Clare, Paul Driver, Sylvia Karasthati, Paul Dummett, Magdalena Wasilewska, Andreia Zakime,Elena Domínguez Romero, Jelena Bobkina, Candy Fresacher, Tyson Seburn, Chrysa Papalazarou, Magdalena Brzezinska, Emma Louise Pratt, Samantha Lewis, Jean Theuma, and Valéria Benévolo França who are all also members of the Visual Arts Circle. The book includes a preface by Gunther Kress, Professor of Semiotics and Education in the Department of Culture, Communication and Media Within the Institute of Education of University College London.

 

 

The book is available by open access thanks to the support of the ELT Council. You can download a free copy from the Visual Arts Circle website.
