YLTSIG In conversation with Susan Hillyard

This Sunday 23rd October at 14:00 (London time) join us in conversation with Susan Hillyard

Susan Hillyard holds a B.Ed. from Warwick University (U.K.) in Dramatic Arts and Sociology and has worked as a classroom teacher, a Head, or a teacher trainer in eleven countries, using drama for education and language learning.

She has taught at two major teacher training colleges in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she is currently based. She is the former Educational Advisor for The Performers Theatre and an educational consultant travelling to six or seven countries each year.

She has co-authored a Resource Book for Teachers “Global Issues” for OUP, and has authored and taught an online course : From Learning Creatively to Teaching Creatively.

In Argentina she’s the driving force behind the provision of English language teaching  in special schools, shanty town schools, hospital schools, orphanages and home visits to students with severe and terminal illnesses.

For this challenging  project,  she has been very busy designing a new curriculum  to teach English through Drama, starting with storysacks and having the teachers become materials writers, collating all the syllabi and materials in document form whilst supervising and coordinating the implementation of this creative and innovative project.

If you couldn’t make it on the 23rd October 2011, or would like to watch again ….

We are working very hard to get a recording online – please be patient!

Any problems and for the latest updates ask us on twitter :  iatefl_yltsig
