AESLA 2024: Vicky Gil presents the teacher training model SPECIAL

Our team member Vicky Gil participated in the 41º Congreso Internacional de la Asociación Española de Lingüística Aplicada (AESLA), which was celebrated in the Universitat Politècnica de València (Spain) last 17th-19th April. In her talk, Dr. Gil presented her teacher-training model SPECIAL, which was designed to be used in English as a Foreign Language and Content and Language Integrated Learning contexts, and which stems from different language teaching theories such as Project-Based Learning and Second Language Learning and Teaching.  By presenting her model, she also addressed the limitations of preexisting teacher-training models in these contexts, and highlighted the benefits that the SPECIAL model offers to teachers in training.
