Ever wondered about how your students learn? Ever thought about how to get them to learn what you're teaching them? We all have, so in this informal session we'll be sharing experiences and looking at some ways to help you and your students.
The brain is a mysterious country, land of secrets and intriguing plots. Much has been written and said about it, and about how Neurolinguistics can help teachers improve their students' performance. In this informal session we'll be looking at some myths and truths and find out a little bit more about this "uncharted" territory.
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf? For many of us the advances of technology in the last couple of years have left us with the feeling that we need to be a tech wizard in order to be good teachers. Nothing could be further than the truth. However, technology plays an important role in 21st century learning which is what we'll be discussing in this informal session.
Dyslexia, ADHD, ODD... the list can go on and on. All students are different, all need different things in a lesson, all learn differently. In this session we'll be looking at some of these "differences" and share experiences about how we can work with all our "different" students.
What is Mindfulness? And is it really useful for teachers? In this informal session we'll be discussing and sharing experiences about these and other questions.
Teacher stress and burnout is to be taken very seriously. The amount of stress and the workload most teachers face can affect their health as well as their families and personal life. In tis session we'll be sharing stories and looking at some strategies to help us cope with the most demanding parts of our jobs.
Another school year has come to its end and it's time to look back at what was achieved, what we could improve and what we want to work on next year. In this informal session, we'll be sharing our thoughts, our goals and reflect on our teaching practice.

Portfolios are sometimes used to motivate young learners, but what about older students? In this session we’ll be looking at practical ideas and tips for using portfolios in the classroom regardless of level or age.
Frustrated, challenging, disrespectful and sometimes aggressive. Sounds familiar? You're not alone. Teachers all over face the same problem: students unwilling to learn. Are they really that bad? Is there anything we can do? In this session we'll be looking at some strategies and activities that might help you turn little monsters into learners.
The English we hear and read in class is not always the English we hear and read out there, in the real world. Would you like to use that in your lessons? Need some tips on how to make the most of it? Then this session is for you.
Classrooms are not always the friendliest of places. Sometimes they aren’t even comfortable but cramped with chairs, desks and people. This then interferes with how we teach and how students learn. In this session we’ll be looking at how classroom layout and dynamics can make the difference in students’ behaviour and learning progress.
“Good morning, everyone. Let’s start by checking the homework.” If this sounds familiar then you’re also familiar with what comes next… In “warmers, fillers and… what else?” we’ll be looking at very practical ideas for you to use any time you need.
Not many students find the experience of being tested a pleasant one. From writing to speaking and from reading to listening, we’ll be looking at activities that can be adapted to your tests, always bearing in mind that correcting a test can be turned into a learning experience for the student.
Mobiles: as teachers we hate them, but students can’t seem to live without them. So what should we do? The saying goes “If you can’t beat them, join them” and that’s what we’ll be looking at in this session: different ways of incorporating mobile devices in our class.
As teachers we are naturally communicative people, as language teachers we see it as our role to model the language we want our students to use. But are we giving them enough space to do so? In this session we’ll be looking at TTT vs Student Talking time and ways to shift the focus of our lesson so our students can make the most of it.
In our previous session “Teacher Talking Time vs Student Talking Time” we started to look at ways in which to centre our lessons more in our students. In this sessions we’ll continue developing the topic and will be sharing activities which you can use with different ages and levels to make your lessons more student centred.
