ELC Digest

Sohaib Sandhu (Editor)

The ‘ELC Digest‘ was a magazine produced by the ELC under the guidance of Dr. Waleed Al-Amri, and managed and edited by Dr. Fauzia Shamim from 2011 onwards for approximately 2 years. It contained selected ELT information (articles, websites etc.) as well as news about conferences, new books/articles etc.

There were numerous topics that were no doubt of interest and beneficial, many of which related to the Middle Eastern context.

Rather than let this valuable resource ‘gather dust’ and disappear in the ‘vast canyon of lost knowledge’, we have decided to share the magazines with our colleagues.

We have for this week uploaded two of the first editions which cover topics such as:

  • To use or not to use L1 in the classroom
  • An Action Research Toolkit
  • An article on how to improve teaching through action research
  • Book Reviews
  • Ten tips for classroom management, and much more.

It’s possible that some of the links do not work as they are old. We will try to rectify this problem. In the meantime, enjoy the read.

We have dedicated a separate page for the ELC Digest so you can refer to this any time you like.
