How can I motivate my students? You need a GPS!
This session draws from a study I conducted with my university students. I will suggest that students can be motivated if the teacher pays sufficient attention to the group processes, promoting acceptance, creating a feeling of palpable belonging, an environment that is psychologically safe.
Tonicity is a speaker’s use of stress to focus a listener’s attention. It’s an aspect of pronunciation which is often neglected, but is crucial in getting meaning across. In this session we will look at ways of presenting and practicing this important skill in the language class.
“Integrating Arts and Humanities subjects into language training”
Man, to use the words of anthropologist Clifford Geertz, is an animal suspended in webs of significance he himself has spun. And language is the needle, the bobbin and the shuttle we all use on a daily basis to weave the intricate tapestry of culture we live in. The question is how does one approach the ‘weaving’ task in a second language classroom?
“Teaching Multimedia Composing in PowerPoint via a “Workshop Model”
Though we all use Microsoft PowerPoint, few know that it can be used to combine text, sound, images and video to create engaging, stand-alone multimedia presentations. In this workshop, the speaker will present an assignment sequence in which students create multimedia presentations in groups using PowerPoint.
