Talk 1

Interchange for the 21st Century Learner - Glenn Mathes

Your students are 21st century learners and you want to be confident that you are giving them the skills they need. Using Interchange, we will look specifically at building the following 21st century skills: critical thinking/problem solving, creativity, oral and written communication, teamwork/collaboration, and ICT (Information and communication technology) skills.


Glenn Mathes has been a teacher, teacher trainer, program coordinator, writer, and editor. He is currently a publisher for Cambridge University Press based in the New York City office. He is responsible for publishing the Jack Richards’ courses Interchange, Passages, and Four Corners.


Talk 2

Every picture tells a story - Nick Bilbrough

Forget multiple intelligence theory: whether we are auditory, kinaesthetic or (olfactory!) learners, our ability to remember images invariably outperforms our ability to re-member other forms of data such as words or sounds. Educationalists have been making use of this fact for at least the last 25 centuries. In this lively workshop we'll explore some motivating classroom activities where clocking, creating and cooking up images is used as a way to make language meaningful and memorable.



Nick Bilbrough has been involved in language teaching for over twenty years, and has taught in three continents in a wide range of interesting and challenging contexts. He has worked on training courses for language teachers in many parts of the world, and is a regular speaker at conferences worldwide. He is the author of two resource books in the Cambridge Handbooks for Language Teachers series: Dialogue Activities (2007) and Memory Activities for Language Learning (2011) He now runs Horizon Language Training in Totnes, Devon, UK specialising in short courses for language teachers from all over the world.
