TOP WAYS TO ENGAGE
How to motivate students

To get the best out of them, you need to engage your students' interest
about webinar
English language materials are bursting with good content and ideas for skills exploitation. To get the best out of them, you need to engage your students' interest. This isn't always easy, especially if they are at the end of a long, hard week or 'aren't in the mood'. At times like this, you need to challenge them, make them curious and/or encourage them to be imaginative. Sometimes you simply have to find out what they're good at or even give them responsibility for what happens in the class.
Often, giving them a team-task can inspire renewed engagement with the lesson.

11:00–11:50 Motivating the unmotivated - ten ways to get your students to DO something
English language materials are bursting with good content and ideas for skills exploitation. To get the best out of them, you need to engage your students' interest. This isn't always easy, especially if they are at the end of a long, hard week or 'aren't in the mood'. At times like this, you need to challenge them, make them curious and/or encourage them to be imaginative. Sometimes you simply have to find out what they're good at or even give them responsibility for what happens in the class. Often, giving them a team-task can inspire renewed engagement with the lesson. In this talk, I will suggest ten ways that you can engage their interest and access their knowledge. It's all there, waiting to be exploited.

12:00–12:45 Reducing fear, increasing confidence - how to reach students who think that learning is an ordeal
Students of any subject may feel apprehensive about being in class, but the fear potential can increase when the subject is a foreign language,
where even to say "I don't know or I don't understand" can be an ordeal in itself. Students in state sector schools who are required to move up to the next level of a subject at the beginning of a new school year, regardless of the level they reached at the end of the previous one, can understandably feel some fear about being in class. But research suggests that the problem also exists in private schools, where the classes are smaller and the courses are theoretically more tailored to the student needs. In a learning situation, fear and confidence are in an inverse relationship with each other. The more we can reduce fear, the more we can instil confidence. And it is my belief that there are aspects of language teaching methodology which lend themselves to successful reduction of fear and increase in confidence. A simple recognition that fun activities and games are an authentic way of learning is a good start. In this talk, I will try to give examples of other successful classroom strategies.

13:00-13:45 Is Anybody Listening?
Students have three ways of working on their listening skills in class: listening to the teacher, listening to machines and listening to other students. Most students do the first two, but not the third. In this talk, I will show how you can encourage learners to listen to each other, for example by using the power of images and also with instrumental music. The amazing activities will have you listening intently to each other to complete the tasks.
