All ELT teachers and coordinators
For participants
- to rethink what and how they are teaching
- to curate resources and design units of work which are in keeping with what and how learners need to learn
- How we teach as subordinate to what we want learners to learn.
- Units of work for primary and secondary learners
- Learning how to think, as well as how to interact and mediate in English.
Participants will inductively start by having a look at how different learners learn different contents. They will asynchronously explore the different sources which have informed the choice of the resources and the way they have been designed. Gradually participants will collaboratively design their own material, which they will be able to use with their learners at the end of the course. On zoom, participants will share with their colleagues how their own learning might have shed light on how post-pandemic learners might need to approach learning.
