Learning to collaborate: Opening up the Exam / General English divide – with Deborah Hobbs
The benefits of students working collaboratively are well documented, but how often do we, as educators, apply these methods in exam classes? Besides using examples from the Open World series, this workshop will open up exam teaching through mobile and student generated materials for use inside and outside the classroom, putting learners at the heart of the collaborative experience.
Deborah Hobbs works in Bristol as a freelance author and instructional designer and also as an English language lecturer and teacher in adult and higher education. She has enjoyed over 10 years of English language teaching, examining and training, and regularly speaks at international teacher training events. She has worked in several countries including China, Italy and Spain. Deborah holds a DipTESOL and is currently studying for an MA ODE Open (technology enhanced learning and design). Prior to becoming an educator, Deborah was a business change and project manager in financial services.
