From curriculum to handout: Considerations for teacher-made ELT materials

Date and Time: 
Sunday, 16 April 2017 - 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Speaker: 
Cameron Romney (Doshisha University)

To some extent, all teachers are materials writers. For some it is just an occasional review worksheet or a homework assignment. For others their self-made materials are the bulk of their coursework; most teachers of course, fall somewhere in between.

Motivation Boot C.A.M.P.

Date and Time: 
Sunday, 12 March 2017 - 2:00pm - 4:30pm
Speaker: 
Chris P. Madden

The term C.A.M.P. comes from collaboration, autonomy, mastery, and purpose, and together we will examine how to weave them into our classrooms. Firstly, ignore intrinsic motivation. Act as though everything you do (and don’t do) in the classroom (and beyond) effects your students’ extrinsic motivation.
