When students learn to work together: fostering collaboration in the ELT classroom
Thursday 3rd October at 12:00 BST
About the webinar:
The ability to collaborate effectively with others is a key life competency that can be fostered through all stages of the learning journey, and one which ELT teachers are well-placed to help develop. In this webinar, Ben Knight and Daniel Vincent will talk about the different elements of successful collaboration, showing how they can be brought out through the teaching of English at all ages, and will offer a number of examples of collaborative activities that teachers can do in class.
