Leoxicon: About me I’ve been involved in ELT for more than 12 years in all sorts of roles: teacher, examiner, teacher trainer, senior teacher and materials developer – mainly with the British Council in Tel Aviv but also Cyprus and Turkey. In recent years, teacher training missions have taken me to Azerbaijan, Armenia and other countries in the region where I had a chance to meet, work with and learn from some wonderful and dedicated teachers and teacher trainers. Currently I am a lecturer giving courses to pre-service and in-service teachers in Second Language Acquisition (SLA), teaching methodology, vocabulary teaching and using technology in the classroom (the latter by demand rather than by choice). My other interests – as you can tell from the contents of this blog – include corpus linguistics, lexical approaches to language teaching and using video in the classroom – the topics I’ve written articles and materials on for the British Council and BBC’s TeachingEnglish website.

At Mt Alvernia, students can access all of these opportunities through the iCentre.

The two begin with a discussion about Ewan’s work with design thinking for developing a new learning ecology within an International Baccalaureate school in Barcelona, Spain. This leads in to a conversation about the emotional process teachers go through in relinquishing some of their established control within the classroom. Finally, they discuss the role of school leaders and the key shifts they must make in order to jump into the design thinking process within their schools. Ewan has been a keynote speaker, a pre-conference master […]

What Does a 21st Century Classroom Look Like: Inquiry Posted 05/12/2015 12:23PM | Last Commented 06/03/2015 4:10PM Continuing to follow up the post 10 Signs of a 21st Century Classroom… Incorporating inquiry into courses is one of the areas that I personally struggle with the most. Inquiry has many meanings, but I’m going to define it as a student directed, interest driven approach to new knowledge. It is a natural style of learning. When we were children, we found out that fire was hot by touching a stove, not by taking notes over the phenomenon.
