Exploiting the Coursebook
We aim to shed a light on the coursebook rationale; mainly its methodology and skills hierarchy, and then suggest some principled ways to adapt it in order to increase its relevance to our learners. Some alternatives presented include: teaching a unit
back to front; applying a Task-Based framework; negotiated syllabus; among others.

Teaching Unplugged – what it means in practice
This session will look at a teacher’s interpretation of Dogme in ELT and aim to explore how room can be found for an unplugged approach within a continuous enrolment context.
speaker: Jemma Gardner (@jemjemgardner)
Our workshops are developed to encourage you to become a more reflective teacher: better at understanding what your learners need, how to plan and teach a variety of lesson types, and more aware of how ICT resources can help you in your teaching.
To ensure a participative and personalised atmosphere each workshop will have a maximum of 15 participants.
