Morning Session from 11 am to 1pm : ONE TO ONE
From Teacher to Coach with Rebecca Sprengel
Most of our teaching skills relate almost exclusively to working with groups. So what can usefully be carried over from group teaching and what can’t? In this interactive workshop, we will look at moving from language teacher to language coach in a one to one situation. In addition, we will look at the advantages and potential pitfalls of the client/coach (student/teacher) relationship as well as what coaching is and is not.There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
