Women Speakers – Katherine Bilsborough


, , , ,

faapiplenaryI have 30+ years experience working in ELT as teacher, trainer, author, materials writer and speaker. I’ve worked for OUP, Macmillan, CUP, NGL and other big publishers. I’ve also done teacher training and talks for the British Council. I am available for talks and workshops, in-house training, webinars, other online training and plenaries, semi-plenaries or keynote talks. I am a joint events coordinator for the IATEFL MaWSIG committee (Materials Writers special interest group). I’m based in Spain but willing to travel. Over the past few years I have spoken on the following topics:
• Choice in the Primary classroom
• Enquiry Based Learning
• Teachers as Materials Writers
• Creating ELT Materials
• Learner Autonomy
• Principles for materials writers
• Writing good quality primary materials
• Authenticity, Appropriateness and Accessibility
• Self Esteem
• Writing digital materials
• Practising the four skills in every lesson
• Professional Development through Materials Design
