HOW TO BUILD A RAINBOW BRIDGE (making communicative activities good for learning; making learning activities good for communication).
 
A few decades ago teachers felt that having students communicative in the classroom through real discussion, games and other tricks was the key to language acquisition and fluency. Learning was seen as something different – something students did ‘on the way’ to being able to communicate. But what if these two apparent ‘opposites’ could be combined and a rainbow bridge ‘between prose and passion’ could be created?
 
This seven-hour workshop, immersive and participatory, will look at a new way of designing activities to give both learning and communication ‘payoffs’.
 
Jeremy Harmer is a trainer, teacher and writer, currently working as a course designer and tutor for the online MATESOL at the New School, New York.

PROJECT-BASED LEARNING
 
After a period of low popularity in the 90s, largely due to the rise of a test-oriented, score and performance-based accountability culture in Education around the world, Project-Based Learning has made a powerful comeback. In this mini course, you will learn about Gold Standard Project-Based Learning (PBL), its essential elements and core teaching practices. 
 
This mini course will not only help you build a basic toolkit to start using PBL in your classes, but it will also help you develop a basic skill set and, most importantly, the mindset to successfully engage your learners in this empowering learning model.

DESIGNING WRITING ACTIVITIES THAT MATTER
 
LUIZ OTAVIO BARROS 06/06/2020
MAKE YOUR COURSEBOOK COME ALIVE!
No matter how long you have been teaching, chances are that you’ve been told that: 
“The coursebook is just a means rather than an end in itself.” 
“It’s important to adapt the existing activities and provide extra practice.” 
“You should teach the students, not the book.”
It’s hard to argue with these general guidelines, of course, but how exactly can you put all this into practice when teaching grammar, lexis, functions and skills? 
 
In this seven-hour course, we’ll be looking at dozens of practical ways in which you can get more mileage out of the books you use so that your students can learn faster and better. 
 
Luiz Otávio Barros (MA Hons. in Applied Linguistics, Lancaster University) has been teaching, training teachers, designing language courses and writing ELT materials since 1990.
