Studiedagar för engelsklärare i augusti 2012
I GÖTEBORG (14/8) och STOCKHOLM (15/8)
Heldagsprogram arrangerat av Utbildningsstaden AB, Cambridge University Press, Pearson Education och Oxford University Press. Programmet består av tre föreläsningar - 90 minuter vardera:
Pronunciation as a listening skill: understanding authentic English
Föreläsare: Mark Hancock (Cambridge University Press)
Pronunciation is just as important for listening as for speaking. In this workshop, we will see how to help learners to understand authentic English by focusing on pronunciation. Specifically, we will look at features of connected speech and accent. Participants will leave with lots of practical ideas of how to exploit authentic listening texts in the classroom.
Mark Hancock started teaching English in 1984. He's worked in Sudan, Turkey, Brazil and Spain. He has a degree in Teaching English from Aston University. He has published many ELT books, including Pronunciation Games (Cambridge University Press 1995), English Pronunciation in Use Elementary (Cambridge University Press 2007) and English Pronunciation in Use Intermediate (Cambridge University Press 2003 and 2nd edition in 2012).
21st Century Skills for English Language Teaching
Föreläsare: David Cato (Pearson Education)
The 21st Century skills movement believe that to be successful in today’s fast moving and increasingly connected world, learning needs to be centered around three core skill areas of career and life skills, digital literacies and the 4 C’s; Communication, Collaboration, Critical thinking and Creativity. The session today will focus in more depth at some features of these skill areas and look at their relevance for today’s English Language classroom.
Re-placing the Teacher. In this session David Cato will look in more detail at digital literacies and if they really are the responsibility of the English teacher. We will discuss ways in which educational institutions and publishers address the area of technology in English language teaching and discover how some technologies can help to re-position English teachers in a positive way, benefitting both learner and teacher. Examples will be taken from MyEnglishLab and MyGrammarLab.
Biodata David Cato has taught English for Special Purposes, English for Academic Purposes and business English in the UK, Turkey, Qatar and the UAE. He currently works with the development and marketing of print and digital products at Pearson English Language Teaching.
Culture Vultures or Culture Shock
Föreläsare: Gareth Davies (Oxford University Press)
Do language and culture go hand in hand or can we teach one without the other? Some people argue that in the modern world with English as an international language, teaching British or American culture alongside the language is no longer relevant. While others argue that culture still has a place in the ELT curriculum. In this talk we will try to answer three questions, what culture is, why it is helpful to us as English language teachers and how can we integrate it into our teaching so our students become culture vultures and don’t suffer from culture shocks.
