Talk Topics

Questions of teaching

Sugatra Mitra has suggested good questions unlock learning. In ELT what are those questions? Who asks them? When? What answers and feedback do they provide? In this practical workshop I will encourage you to think of questions as a central part of planning for your lessons and also suggest some questions you might ask yourself to guide reflection and development.

Andrew Walkley

Back to the Future: Plan backwards to move forwards

If we start our lesson planning with a clear sense of where we want our students to be by the end of the class, it’s much easier to then ensure that the material we provide them with offers a direct route. In this hands-on session, we’ll explore some different ways that backwards planning can be put into practice.
