Did we miss the moral? Re-examining the story of ethics in the language classroom

back to The Secrets of ELT 2008

Kristina Mullamaa and Jennifer Uhler (Estonia)

The discussion-based, interactive lecture on the topic of ethics and language teaching will take a look at standards for English language teaching professionals. We will address critical pedagogy by looking at current movements in ELT as well as dilemmas arising in teaching in a global context. Together, we will problematize issues in ELT, take a brief look at the reflections of education in Estonia and mention parallels to other professions engaged in cultural mediation. Participants will be able to engage in discussions on how we can put sensitive critical pedagogy into practice in our own classroom environments.
