Approaches and Opportunities to Get Involved with Quantitative Research

Date and Time: 
Saturday, 16 November 2013 - 4:00pm - 6:00pm
Speaker: 
Greg Sholdt

As with most significant skills or knowledge, there is simply no quick and easy route to mastery of quantitative research methods. However, there is in fact a modest set of fundamental concepts and core methods that guide both simple and sophisticated studies alike. These can be the focus of a much more reasonable and achievable learning goal.

Getting them to talk in English

Date and Time: 
Thursday, 24 October 2013 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Speaker: 
Penny Ur

It is always a problem getting students to talk informally in English: However interesting the topic we suggest, they often prefer to keep silent, or to express themselves their mother tongue. This talk suggests a few guidelines that will go some way towards solving these problems, illustrated by some practical activities intended for students at various levels of proficiency.
