CeLTA Signature Series Workshop: “How effective are different vocabulary learning activities?” by Dr. Stuart Webb, Western Ontario University, Canada
There are many different ways to learn words. Textbooks include a wide variety of exercises that are used to promote vocabulary learning. However, there is no guide provided about why these activities are effective or why one activity might be more useful than another. In this workshop we will first consider different principles that can be used to evaluate activities and exercises. We will then examine a number of different vocabulary learning activities and discuss how their features contribute to learning.
