The next IATEFL webinar will be with Jill Hadfield, an IATEFL International Ambassador on 31 May 2014 at 3pm BST. Jill will be talking about ‘Motivation, Imagination and L2 Identity’.
The webinar will deal with recent research on the relationship between motivation and the identity of the learner. This method, known as the L2 Motivational Self System by Zoltán Dörnyei, combines three motivation factors and looks at the use of imagination to enable learners to envision a new identity. The webinar will cover the theory behind this method, explain how it can promote language learning and suggest practical activities for teachers to use in the classroom.
