"About the webinar:

Critical thinking and creative thinking are often presented as opposites because one involves convergent thinking and the other requires divergent thinking. However, I’d argue that they are two sides of same coin: one inspires the other. In this webinar, I’ll explore their relationship in the ELT classroom and illustrate how we can apply them with practical activities you can use in your teaching tomorrow. The session will also include ideas taken from the book ‘Critical thinking in ELT’ (National Geographic Learning) which was a finalist in the 2020 British Council ELTons awards.

About the speaker:

John Hughes is an award-winning ELT author and teacher trainer. With over 40 book titles, his best-known course series is National Geographic Learning’s Life and he is also a co-author on the new third edition of World English. As a teacher trainer, he has run courses, workshops and given conference presentations in over 40 countries. His main specialism is materials development and bridging the gap between theory and practice. He still teaches and pilots his own materials with students in Oxford.
