Alternative assessment tools: What’s in your toolbox?
How many different assessment tools are you using in your classes? What do you use them for? In this session, we will differentiate between two types of assessment: 1) measuring the quality of your pupils’ output to get an overall grade or score, and 2) identifying areas to provide them with the feedback on their knowledge, skills, attitudes, and production that they need to improve future performance and learning outcomes. And by way of practical examples we will fill up our Teacher’s Toolbox with alternative assessment methods recommended for formative assessment.

Top tips for terrific teachers
I’m a teacher of young learners: how can I keep my classes dynamic and my students interested? In this session we’ll look at some top tips to bear in mind in order to keep learners on their toes, make certain that learning is taking place and ensure that lots of fun is had into the bargain too! From the best ways to present language to bringing reading to life to motivating students to write, the activities presented in this session will add real sparkle to your classroom.

Cooperative learning and projects: the perfect match
There are many opportunities in the English classroom for cooperative learning but projects, key to secondary education, have proved to be the perfect match. Why? In this session we will first answer this broader question before looking at some practical examples of projects which will engage your students and help you to put a fresh and effective twist on your lessons.
