Enjoyment and Engagement in Early Literacy

Do you read stories to your students? In this practical webinar, I’d like to share how we can make our course book stories come alive.  By encouraging and exploring listening and speaking skills, we are setting down the foundations for later reading.  If we use personalization and scaffolding techniques too, we can help young readers connect to the narrative, cultivating a better feeling of belonging to the language, while acquiring a deeper understanding of the task as a whole.

Mediation in the CEFR: implications for learning, teaching and assessment

‘Mediation’ is the latest ELT buzzword. But what exactly is it, and why should you teach it? This webinar explores the concept of mediation and the illustrative scales devoted to it in the 2018 Companion Volume to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). We will look at how mediation skills are used both inside and outside the classroom, with a particular focus on the mediation skills that teachers use in their everyday practice. We will consider how mediation competences can benefit students in professional and academic life, and how coursebooks help learners develop this. We will also look at how mediation scales can be used for self-assessment and goal-setting, and to support teacher-led assessment.

Direct or Delegate? Which communication style works best?

What is your preferred communication style when leading your team? Do you feel most comfortable when directing others, mentoring them, coaching them, or delegating responsibility to them? In today’s dynamic world, everyone needs excellent communication skills. But being an effective communicator is more challenging than one might first think. Most people have a preferred communication style, but the secret to effective communication is not about your own preference, but about understanding the preferences of the people you are communicating with in any given situation. Successful communications depend on people’s personality, values, life experience and on the relationship you have with each other.  It also depends on the subject and the context. Leaders need to have adaptive communication skills to get the best from each individual in their team. Most people communicate on a subconscious level, in line with their preferred style. In this webinar we will consider how, by using emotional intelligence, a team leader can most consciously adapt their communication style to influence positive change in team dynamics or individual effectiveness.

Integrating pronunciation with a coursebook-based syllabus

Research shows that time spent on pronunciation is time well spent: improved phonological awareness not only improves learners’ ability to understand and be understood, but also boosts proficiency in other areas, including reading, writing and vocabulary. But research also shows that teachers worldwide tend to lack confidence and training in teaching pronunciation—not to mention time! This webinar will explore how to make the most of a coursebook’s pronunciation content, as well as some straightforward, low-prep ways of exploiting pronunciation features hidden elsewhere in the course, including reading texts, grammar exercises, and so on.

P is for Performance

In the literature on second language acquisition, performance is typically contrasted with competence – with the implication that competence is a pre-condition for performance. I.e. we should learn the rules of language before applying them. This is a distinction that has been challenged more recently, in the light of so-called ‘usage-based’ views of language acquisition, which argue that using IS learning. ‘Performance’, of course, retains its original, non-specialist, senses of production, play and drama – not to mention ‘performativity’. I will argue that these many meanings can be bundled together to create a truly performance-based methodology.
