Moving from print coursebooks to ebooks: learnings from classroom research
Date: Tuesday 5 July
ELT materials and practice are increasingly digitally-based. What opportunities and challenges do ebooks present for schools, teachers and learners? And how can publishers, teacher trainers and institutional managers offer an implementation framework with appropriate support? This webinar will share insights and practical recommendations from a three-month practical classroom research study focusing on the adoption of face2face (Cambridge University Press) ebooks at the Embassy English school in Cambridge.
