SELC dean Prof Malachi Edwin Vethamani, an invited plenary speaker for the KL session, delivered a paper entitled, ‘Transformations in ELT: Incorporating the Green Dimension’. He was also a panelist for the closing forum on ‘To Go or Not to Go Native: The Role of Native Speaker Teachers and Trainers in Second and Foreign Language Teaching’.
SELC senior lecturer Noor Azliza Zainal Abidin presented a demonstration on ‘Interactive Games Are Powerful Learning Tools’. The participants were drawn to the idea that they could develop games even through the PowerPoint programme.
SELC also showcased an interactive CD which was developed to help Malaysian English language teachers teach the new literary texts in the KBSM syllabus. Prof Edwin and WOU student Justine Jesunathan demonstrated the use of this CD by introducing teachers to a set of interactive learning materials that have been developed to teach Form 1 and Form 4 students.
