Abstract: In 2004, the Centre for Research in Pedagogy and Practice(CRPP) at the National Institute of Education(NIE), published a report on ―A Critical Review of the Tamil Language Syllabus and Recommendations for Syllabus Revision (CRP36/03SL)‖. 10 key recommendations were proposed ranging from effective use of Standard Spoken Tamil in classrooms to pedagogical approaches for the teaching of language skills to help students speak the language with ease and understanding. This workshop will share a study based on developing and designing multimodal materials using task-based approaches Brumfit & Johnson 1979; Pica, 1993) to train teachers in the Diploma in Education Programme. It will discuss how learning is situated in learners‘ social and therefore interactional practices. It investigates how tasks are not only accomplished but also encourages collaboration ( Mondana Doehler, 2004 ).
