In this highly interactive training, participants working with English language learners will explore various ways to implement learner-centered practices in their teaching, including through conducting needs assessments, drawing upon students’ stories, and engaging learners in meaningful and authentic language tasks and projects. Practitioners will be invited to grapple with common dilemmas that arise in classrooms around this issue. They will also choose an area related to the topic to explore in their practice. The presenters will model learner-centered practice by drawing upon the many experiences of participants.
