A focus on materials development with Rachael Roberts and Adam Kilgarriff

Here is another seminar that was live streamed and this time put on YouTube: A focus on materials development with Rachael Roberts and Adam Kilgarriff:

The first presentation starts at around 5 minutes. Rachael Roberts, the first speaker, gives a very interesting talk about writing materials.

The second speaker (after around an hour) is not such a good presenter, but still has some interesting points about using corpora in the classroom without scaring the students!

An excellent link is provided: http://forbetterenglish.com/ (an experimental automatic collocations dictionary)

Handout from Rachael Roberts here: More than just a worksheet: how to write effective classroom materials
