Pandemonium in the Pandemic Class: A survival guide

Whether you are teaching online, hybrid, or face-to-face, being an educator is far from easy and predictable these days. Teaching silent “black boxes” online or dealing with learners who chew their masks and are barely audible, are now part of the job description. How can you cope? I will give tips and hints on how to grapple with some everyday hindrances.

Coursebook adaptation for online learning

Speakers
Panagiota Frytzala

Adapting reading activities for the online classroom

The online classroom has entered our lives, whether we aspire to it or not, so it is our duty as teachers to adapt to the new situation as quickly as possible. This, however, definitely involves adapting the printed coursebook we have been using so far to fit the needs and demands of online teaching and learning. Within this framework, this webinar aims at presenting practical ways of how teachers can adapt the coursebook to fit the online classroom. More specifically, this presentation will attempt to assist teachers with adapting reading comprehension activities for online use in a way that they will better serve both learners and teachers. Therefore, it will offer practical tips for every section of a reading comprehension task, starting with fitting the text to screen-use and moving on with the adaptation of pre-reading and post-reading tasks, including vocabulary activities.

Oh no! Not writing again! How to develop your students' writing skills within a challenging online learning environment.

'Oh no! Not writing again' is a common phrase among students and even teachers. Now that we are in the middle of a pandemic and we are teaching online, writing seems to be either neglected or it is perceived to be the most challenging skill to teach online. During this presentation we will get to know writing better. After examining how various coursebooks incorporate writing, practical solutions will be given on how to adapt and adjust it, by taking the students' level and age into account, in order to make it more engaging for them.

Teaching Grammar in a non-conventional way

Speakers
Maria Davou

Teaching Grammar without teaching Grammar

In this webinar, we will explore the TGWTG approach. In other words, we will see how we can integrate grammar tasks in all skills. Grammar is present everywhere and there is no language without it. However, teaching Grammar communicatively is often a riddle for teachers. How can we design grammar tasks that are creative and meaningful? How can we teach grammar "in disguise"?


Andrew Walkley

Teaching Grammar through Lexis

Students sometimes say their ‘grammar’ is terrible and teachers often worry about how to teach grammar better. But before we leap into doing more grammar exercises or introducing fun games, perhaps we should take a step back and question exactly what we mean by grammar - and for that matter what we mean by teaching and learning.<p>Different notions of these things will lead to different ways of ‘becoming better’. I will present how we might teach grammar better if we see language as lexically driven and see teaching and learning as an open spiralling process.
