In this presentation, I will showcase the various factors and procedures involved in the process of ELT material development and evaluation, which I have compiled through information synthesis from some of the most seminal literature on the topic (e.g. Tomlinson, 2001, 2003, McDonough and Shaw, 2003; Richards, 2001; Mishan, 2005, and many others). First, I will start by explaining the principled creation of criteria to evaluate the suitability of commercial and/or in-house course books for any particular target group based on needs, wants and means analysis. Then I will explain how the results of these three analyses should be combined and synthesized to create relevant learning outcomes. Next, I will account for the principles and procedures followed in the design and development of ELT materials and how to subject them to a three-phase effectiveness evaluation, pre, whilst and post using them in class, which then culminates in an overall evaluation. Finally, I will wrap up with a summary of practical guidelines for best practice, followed by Q and A.
