IATEFL monthly webinar with Michael Harrison
Making decisions is difficult – whether that’s the case for you as a teacher trying to work out what you’ll teach in your next lesson (and how!) or your learners trying to plan what they’re going to write for an upcoming assignment. How can we simplify these everyday dilemmas? This webinar aims to show you how this is possible, by demonstrating a number of decision-making models and graphic organisers that can be used by teachers and learners to clarify their thoughts. Not just for making decisions, these models may also be useful as prompts for productive or reflective work in the classroom. Disclaimer – this is not a magic bullet that will resolve all your ELT-related worries – but if you come with an open mind, some pen and paper ready to work on some decisions, you are sure to pick up some ideas for your next class.
