About Your Course Tutor

Emma Pratt

Senior Tutor, Course Writer and Online Workshop Presenter

Emma’s specialism is looking at creative solutions to classroom practice and learning, working with all age groups. She has a background in museum and visual arts education and English language teaching, as well as communications, marketing, video, audio, design and coding. She has also worked in teacher management working with the business side of running language schools and working with agents. She is a visual artist with an active, recognised career spanning 20 + years (emmapratt.com). Her current project is in writing and illustrating for children. She is also a parent and company director.

In learning, her area of interest is in artmaking as a physical, intellectual, and emotional response to the world. She investigates ways in which it can be used in English language contexts to engage children’s brains, challenge their visual schema, and give voice to non-verbal forms of communication. She has contributed to publications and blogs on this subject.

Emma has given workshops at IATEFL and The Image Conference on drawing in the classroom as well as being the 2018 Artist in Residence at IATEFL. She is interested in the role of illustration in storytelling and how to exploit that in the classroom. Emma has been involved in an Artists in Schools programme and in artist residency projects where she has looked at storytelling. Online, she has given drawing and language workshops for children.

Emma has been designing online learning courses since 2013 and was, with Jamie King, a finalist in the ELTons 2014 for Innovation in Teaching Resources.
