I recently attended the (virtuial) Open University H818 Conference where students on H818 (a module in the MA Online & Distance Learning track) could present their project work. The diversity and quality of all the project work was really inspiring but one that particularly caught my attention was this https://tprlanguageresources.wordpress.com/ on 'Total Physical Response' education. I admit that education theory is not my strong point but TPR is something completely new to me.TPR is the use of movement, virtual realiaity, video and pictures and is commonly used when learning a different language. This approach was developed by an American psychologist called Dr James Asher (Asher, 1969). In the late ‘60s and early ’70s, he hypothesized that language learning could be enhanced by using similar techniques to those used when we learn our language. The current site is something of a work in progress but it does include some links to resources and a workshop on TPR. I do some teaching / tuition (although not on this course) and have always insisted that my students teach me as much as I teach them.
