College and University Educators Conversation / Language School Practice-Oriented Short Workshop

Orchestrate or Pontificate

Sat, Jul 9, 15:50-16:15 Asia/Tokyo

Location: F23

Many of us teachers get easily sucked into a "Chalk & Talk" style of teaching in our oral communication classes. It is essential to give your students the opportunity and space to develop their oral communication skills. By doing this your students will actually want to come to class. This workshop will present a bundle of ideas to help you hand over to your students so that you may stand back and observe their progress.
