My name is Philip Kerr and I’m a teacher trainer, lecturer and materials writer. My books include the coursebook series Inside Out and Straightforward (both with Macmillan) , and the methodology titles Translation and Own-Language Activities (CUP) and How to Write Vocabulary Presentations and Practice (ELT Teacher 2 Writer)
The first ten posts on this blog (in January and February 2014) together form a guide to adaptive learning in ELT. These earlier posts have been revised and collated in an ebook that has been published by The Round. You can download it for free here. Subsequent posts will either be more detailed looks at some of the issues raised in the guide, or they will be more recent developments.
There is now a short video extract of me talking about adaptive learning at the ETp Live! conference in June 2014 which can be seen on YouTube.
The next time I will be talking about adaptive learning in ELT will be at the English Australia Conference in Hobart, Tasmania (21 – 23 September, 2016). Further information can be found here.
