Based on the feedback and the pool of ideas discussed in the first workshop in 2018, this sequel to“The Challenge of Teaching Adults” has as an overall aim to help teachers (re)organize their lessons for this age group, bearing in mind these issues:
What do we need to take into account to teach adult students? Where do we start from? How do we set the course goals? How can we best make use of different resources so as to help our adult students meet these goals and learn English meaningfully and effectively?
If you missed our edition last year, don’t worry because we will be refreshing some key ideas and conclusions. We will also be presenting new online tools, discussing different case studies and thinking about outside-the-box activities. If you attended in 2018, do join us again for it is the perfect opportunity to share our queries and experiences as well as resources and strategies to make the most of our lessons for adults.
When? Saturday June 8th – 9 to 12
APRIR members: free of charge
Students, IES staff and members of FAAPI affiliated TAs: $200
