Russell Mayne: A guide to pseudo-science in English language teaching
26. April 2014 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm
World Clock Sat 5pm GMT, 6pm London, 7pm Paris, 2am Tokyo (Sun), 1pm New York
This talk will focus on aspects of English language teaching which have little or no scientific credibility. Practices such as neuro-linguistic programming, learning styles, multiples intelligences and brain gym will be examined. This talk will ask why, despite the evidence, these approaches/methods remain popular. It will also include a guide to spotting pseudo-science in education.
Russell Mayne has been teaching for around 15 years. He has taught in Japan, Taiwan and now in the UK and the University of Leicester (EAP). Russell holds a DELTA and an MA in TESOL/applied linguistics. He is interested in research and teacher beliefs.
