My name is Darío Luis Banegas and I am a Lecturer in TESOL with the School of Education, University of Strathclyde. My teaching experience with young learners and (future) teachers comes from Argentina. In Argentina, I worked as a primary and secondary English-as-a-foreign-language teacher, teacher educator in BA and MA programmes, and as a curriculum developer with the Ministerio de Educación del Chubut.
I am a visiting lecturer at universities in South America (Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador) and Europe (Spain and the UK) particularly in the areas of CLIL (Content and language integrated learning), language curriculum development, and educational action research.
My main areas of expertise and interest include: CLIL, teaching young learners, initial English language teacher education, and professional development through action research.
I am passionate about teaching modules and courses related to CLIL, ELT methods and approaches, action research in language education, and linguistics for language education.
I am involved in the following modules in the MSc TESOL and Intercultural Communication programme:
- Term 1: Language teaching in a multilingual world.
- Term 2: Contemporary issues in language teaching; Developing language and communicative skills; & Practitioner enquiry for professional learning.
My current research interests include: the role of linguistics (and its branches) in teachers' professional knowledge, practices, and identity; CLIL in Latin America; curriculum development for English language teacher education; diversity in English language teaching; and approaches for continuing professional development in language education.
