Reflections on authenticity in teaching and learning

Alan Duff R.I.P.

 

I loved The Mind’s Eye, it was one of the books on the shelf in the staff room at Brasshouse from ‘a bygone era’ (having started teaching EFL in 2000) and I loved the pictures; it was great they were black and white too and the surreal aspect really appealed to me.  It inspired me to use visual images in the classroom.  I still now use a picture of an oil landscape painting for students to talk about where they are now in their learning, where they would like to be; so rich in cultural metaphor and very personalised.  I then use it at the end of the course too.  Thanks Alan.
