Researchers have suggested that ELT materials should be created in a more systematic way. This presentation proposed a systematic creation process by introducing an Instructional Design model called ADDIE (Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement and Evaluate) and how it can be applied to the creation of ELT materials.

I just got the official word: I will be a featured speaker at the Japan Association for Language Teaching’s 41st Annual International Conference on Language Teaching and Learning & Educational Materials Exhibition in Shizuoka. I will be giving a workshop called Harnessing the power of visual design and a lecture titled Towards systematic materials design with ADDIE. I’m really excited, especially that the conference will be at Granship in Shizuoka. The first JALT conference that I attended was held there in 2003. It’s a real milestone for my career. Twelve years ago I attended JALT as a participant, this year I will be a featured speaker. What a difference 12 years makes! I’m also really excited about the conference theme of “focus on the learner” as that is a big part of who I am as a teacher.
