KEYNOTE - STEVEN FAWKES

Language learners: creating what?

9:40am to 10:40am

Steven Fawkes will explore, with a light touch, the notion of what creativity means in the context of the languages classroom, who is supposed to do it, and how it fits with the multiple tasks of the teacher! There will be participation and a collaborative performance! Examples in a range of languages.


CHOICE OF TWO WORKSHOPS

11:10am to 12:10pm and 12:15pm to 1:15pm

In a change from last year's booking arrangements, you will be able to express workshop preferences when buying your ticket on this site, but your allocated workshops will be confirmed on arrival at the venue.

Steven Fawkes

Authentic and creative

Steven Fawkes will illustrate engaging activities which encourage spontaneous speaking, response to authentic texts (including Literature), manipulation of language, memorization and consider motivation. Examples in French, Spanish and German.

Nadine Chadier

Language is creativity!

Nadine would like to inspire you to unveil your love and joy of languages by going off-piste with tips and tricks that bring the language alive through creative hands on projects. Examples will be given in French, but are transferable to other languages.

James Cordle

Say something! Encouraging pupil talk in the classroom

Getting pupils to speak a foreign language can be a real battle! With spontaneous speaking and being able to think on your feet a much bigger part of the new GCSE speaking exam, it is more important than ever that we are preparing our pupils in the right way from the moment they start. The main focus of the workshop will be to look at practical ways we can encourage pupils across the age and ability range to talk in the classroom through a variety of easy-to-adapt activities. We will also explore why it's important and what other factors can contribute to a classroom where pupils increase the amount of target language talk. The workshop will cover examples in Spanish and French but will be easily applicable to German or other languages.

Ruth Bailey

Can Neuroscience help us understand more about good practice in MFL? A focus on Science of Learning, memorisation and recall.

As studies of the brain become more and more sophisticated, we are gaining a much better idea of how our pupils learn. In this session we will look at concepts from the 'Science of Learning' project at the University of Bristol's School of Education, and apply these to MFL teaching and learning, with a particular focus on memorisation and recall strategies. These building blocks to language learning are key for pupils to become creative and independent with the language. No Science background is required!

Examples will be applicable to all languages.


CONFERENCE CLOSES AT 1:15PM
