In a day packed with excellent presentations, our last presentation from Diane Warner completed the wealth of ideas on offer to delegates. Diane Warner is a Senior Lecturer in English and Education Studies at the University of Cumbria. Among her academic interests are classroom approaches for EAL pupils. Her presentation focused on small-scale practice-based work she has been undertaking with student teachers. Diane explained that she is making tentative and early moves forward in her own understandings of student teacher thinking and needs in the field of EAL at an institution such as Cumbria (almost exclusively English-White ethnicity). Delegates were asked to engage with examples of students working to ‘develop as culturally-aware teachers’, beginning their journey towards showing understanding that cultural awareness is a necessary part of teaching.
