Exploring ELT as emancipatory practice

Steve Brown explores power relations within the teaching context.

30 minutes

The relationship between language and power is well-documented, but where does the power lie in our teaching contexts? When we say we’re 'empowering' our learners, what are we empowering them with? Do they perhaps have too much power already? This presentation encourages teachers to explore power relations within their praxis, with emancipation as the goal.

Apologies for the sound quality in some of this video. This was due to unforeseen circumstances.
