PROGRAMME

Session 1: Jasmin Silver

Employability Skills in the English Classroom: Empowering Futures

How can we best help our students develop the skills they need to thrive in their future workplaces? In this session, we’ll discuss what the most essential employability skills are, how we can integrate them into our language classrooms effectively and give plenty of practical examples of what this could look like. We’ll include tips and tricks for planning, delivering and assessing employability skills activities and hope to inspire you to integrate these skills into your classroom very soon!

Session 2: Matt Ellman

Mediation: what is it and why is it important?

In recent years, mediation has emerged as a topic of real importance in language teaching. In this session we will examine what it is, why it matters, and practical steps you can take in your lessons to develop your students’ mediation skills. We’ll also look at how to assess mediation, and how Cambridge English Qualifications incorporate this important skill.

Session 3: Sarah Ellis

Adapting to the future: using AI in ELT

This session will explore some of the insights from recent research on perceptions of teachers regarding GenAI and its practical, innovative applications. We aim to encourage teachers to develop a critical perspective towards this powerful and disruptive technology and at the same time we will explore some of the ways GenAI can transform in English language teaching by enriching lessons, nurturing creativity, and sharpening critical thinking skills.
