Unfortunately, Tim Phillips (NGL) called in sick for Saturday and thus has to cancel his workshop on 21st century skills and reschedule on a later date this year.
Andy Vogt-Nas will step in and moderate an interactive workshop on what to do when disaster has struck and you don’t have any material to fall back on. The lesson can still be productive and effective for your learners.
With the title, “Oh no what a personal disaster to YESSS- success!”, we look at how to find ad-hoc teaching solutions, in case of technical breakdown, loss of lesson material, spontaneous coverage of a colleague’s class.
What can we do of the cuff to cover 90 min, without any preparation – on the spur of the moment? This interactive workshop relies on your active brainstorming and creativity. A few ideas and tasks will be handed out to get your creative juices flowing.
We will collect all the different solutions and ideas you come up with and make them available on the ELTAS website after the workshop.
Also, could you please bring with you your favourite teaching activity? This way we can set up a number of ideas and exchange thoughts in the second part of the workshop.
Andy Vogt-Nas, the driving force behind our ELTAS workshops for the past few years and someone who steps up when disaster strikes. Using her personal experience, together with your input, we will put together a “first-aid” package of ELT activities to use in an emergency.
Andy has an MA from Freiburg University in German and English. She worked as research assistant at the Max-Planck-Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen (NL) and spent several years in the northwest of England during and after her studies. Andy has experience in teaching a very wide age range, from toddler to OAP. For many years she was in charge of teenage language courses in the south of England. Her main focus though has been on adult education, teaching Efl and Business English, as well as DaF and Business German.
