Materials design initiative for English language courses at Sri Lankan universities

Project: Other projectOther internal award

Project Details


We received a British Council ELTRA Grant to investigate English language provision in South Asian universities (mainly in Sri Lanka) as English is the medium of instruction in most of these universities. The findings highlighted that important features of academic English are not systematically taught to students mainly due to English language teachers’ lack of training on materials design. In this capacity building impact project, we aim to train a selected group of English language teachers from Sri Lankan universities on how to design teaching materials. The materials will then be piloted, and introduced to the universities.
