Promoting Active Listening in the EFL/ESL Classroom

Date and Time: 
Sunday, 18 June 2017 - 1:30pm - 4:00pm
Speaker: 
Chris Donaldson

Despite its obvious importance, listening as a language skill can often lack the focus placed on the other areas of language such as speaking, reading, and writing. Learning to listen actively can greatly improve a student’s ability to achieve understanding. This workshop aims to help participants explore the concept of active listening in language teaching.

"Sometimes, I think they are a kind of God." Metaphors for teachers, learners and language learning

Date and Time: 
Sunday, 16 April 2017 - 1:30pm - 4:30pm
Speaker: 
Darren Elliott of Nanzan University

"In order to make sense of abstract thought, humans have developed a rich facility for metaphor. These metaphors are loaded with meanings to be unpacked and interpreted. Research into education has a strong tradition of metaphor analysis, utilising metaphors for education to categorise differing attitudes towards the learning process.

Toward Focus-on-form Approach to EFL Teaching in Japan

Date and Time:

In this task-based interactive presentation, I wish to highlight some problems in grammar-based, teacher-centered, and context-poor instruction that is still prevalent in English education in Japan and show directions for change that hopefully enable us to teach English in English for greater students’ benefits.

For some years teacher education and professional development in English language teaching has been moving away from promoting top-down approaches, where teachers are expected to absorb bodies of knowledge and then apply them in the classroom, to more bottom-up perspectives.

Tasks and Evaluation in a Speaking Lesson

Date and Time: 
Sunday, 10 July 2016 - 1:30pm - 4:00pm
Speaker: 
Tetsuya Yasukochi

In this lecture, I'd like to share the way we give tasks to students and evaluate their speaking ability. In my experience, it's very important to give well-prepared tasks in speaking lessons. Without tasks and Can-dos, speaking lessons might end up being nothing more than a series of fun experiences and you might not get expected results over a long period.
