'Developing Global Competence'

Global competence focuses on developing particular skills and attitudes, the knowledge and understanding of global issues and intercultural concerns. It encourages critical thinking and the embracing of cultural diversity. In a world in which isolationism is becoming all the more commonplace, it is imperative that our learners become globally competent individuals. This talk outlines the importance of the concept and how it can be easily incorporated in class in both practical and engaging ways.

'The Power of Image'
Thanks to digital technology, never have we been able to access, create and manipulate such a great variety of images in so little time. This talk analyses ways images have been traditionally used in the language classroom – as visual aids or as prompts to language production – and seeks out some alternative which place the image at the centre of our classroom practice. Among others, we study how images can be exploited in their own right and used to foster intercultural awareness in class. In doing so, we will attempt to develop a visual literacy - encouraging adult students to interpret, rather than simply describe, these images.
