Teresa Ting

sponsored by LEND
After a degree in Biology as well as Psychology, Teresa completed a PhD in Neurobiology (USA), studying learning and memory in rats’ brains, in vivo and in vitro. After 15-plus years in biomedical research, she landed the dream job of teaching English to Italian university students’ brains, in vivo, which prompted her to obtained an MA-TEFL (UK). This has allowed her to continue researching learning and memory: after all, when we learn, we learn with our brain, and, although we cannot put electrodes in students’ brains (Alas!) we can research more effective ways to engage their learning organs (i.e. their brains… yes, if they are in class, they have one). While the combination of EFL and Science took her into CLIL in 2001, she has stayed in CLIL because of the realization that, when done well, CLIL naturally prompts teachers to devise more “brain-compatible” learning environments. A set of her CLIL materials received the 2013 ELTons Award (Macmillan Education Award for Innovative Writing); she was on an ECML research project entitled “CLIL and Literacy”; she is involved with CLIL Teacher-Training programmes in various countries (UK, Spain, Austria, Switzerland); in her free time, she prepares students at a local high school for the Cambridge IGCSE and teaches the verb “to be” to the University students of her dream job.
