A webinar day for language teachers at Turkish universities by Macmillan Education
10.00 – 11.00 – Dorothy ZEMACH
EVENT TITLE: Teaching Writing Online:
As classes move online, you might wonder: How do I handle teaching writing? What exactly can I do during my lessons? You can’t spend 20 minutes watching students type, after all. This session provides advice—with many examples—of how to provide instruction, allow for practice, set meaningful assignments, and collect students’ work, targeting high school and adult levels. We’ll have time for questions & answers at the end.
13.00 – 14.00 – Teresa DOGUELLI
EVENT TITLE: Motivating the Unmotivated:
This webinar will highlight some of the issues causing students at tertiary level to feel unmotivated or demotivated and suggest how these issues can be tackled using a variety of online approaches and techniques which may revitalise the Teaching/Learning from Home process, thus raising the motivation of our Z generation undergraduates. We will also take a brief look at how the concept of Global Citizenship and 21st Century Skills, already integrated into most Macmillan coursebook curricula, can be adapted to provide dynamic, active learning experiences for university learners all over the world.
16.00 – 17.00 – Jamie KEDDIE
EVENT TITLE : The teacher as a storyteller: leading by example
One thing that fascinates human beings is other human beings. And your students are no exception. Whether you realise it or not, your students want to know more about you – their teacher. In this practical talk, I would like to share some ideas for teacher-led storytelling activities to engage your students and get them thinking, speaking, listening, writing, learning, and sharing stories of their own.
