Session details:

The storyline approach is a specific kind of task-based learning. Learners adopt the role of characters in a story, which develops through the use of naturalistic tasks. Learner engagement has a positive effect not least on writing. Based on my recent doctoral study, I will demonstrate how learning was evidenced in writing tasks produced over the course of five weeks.
