Clare Teare, Illustration MA student gives a talk in Shanghai

Clare Teare - currently one of our MA Illustration students, has just given a talk about her MA project and research at the The Materials Development Association (MATSDA) annual conference in Shanghai, China.
"The conference will be co-hosted by MATSDA and the Shanghai Center for Research in English Language Education. The conference theme is “L2 Teacher Development through Materials Development”. We welcome language teachers, researchers, and educators at all levels around the world to participate in this event."
https://www.matsda2018.com/


Clare is researching Accessible EAP (English for academic purposes) via a set of illustrated animated gifs that can be used in a classroom or VLE, illustrating commonly misused academic English linking words and phrases. The aim is to engage international students from a predominantly Asian background and facilitate the correct use of common linking words and phrases in EAP. She is researching whether animated gifs help to facilitate learning and correct use of formal written English words and phrases?
