November will find us in Thessaloniki with 3 unique, inspiring sessions for Language School Owners and Language Teachers.
10.00-12.30 Feedback and Coaching by Leo Child
Constructive and honest feedback from our supervisors can play an important role in our performance. This interactive workshop explores different approaches to giving feedback and gives you the chance to give and be on the receiving end of delivering feedback. Together we will explore how to approach challenging feedback sessions and then how to follow up so that you can implement positive change in your business.
13.00-15.30 Creativity in the Exam Classroom by Maria Theologidou
How can we think and teach outside the exams’ box? In this hands-on workshop, we will look into the ways different exam skills are related to the development of a critical, creative mind and attempt to define what constitutes a «creative approach» to teaching for the exams. After demonstrating creativity’s role in our classes, a variety of hands-on tasks will be presented on the four skills often assessed in exams – Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking. We will explore how existing exam tasks can be adapted as well as how we can design our own creative learning materials. Workshop participants will be given the opportunity to work in groups, try the activities themselves and gain skills which they could use to add a touch of authenticity to their exam-prep classes.
17.00-19.30 Web-Tools for the Language Classroom by Mary Davou
As our learners’ attention span is getting shorter, we need new, engaging ways to help them learn the language. Through the use of a series of web tools, focusing on different areas of learning (from vocabulary acquisition to classroom management), we will see how learning languages can become relevant to our learners. Fun, easy-to-use tools will be presented in this hands-on workshop.
Cost: € 35 for one workshop, € 65 for any two workshops, € 90 for all three workshops
