Past event summary

This workshop was an opportunity to explore practical examples of how language teachers can support student's learning inside and outside the classroom. The main objective was to integrate the current ideas of the discipline, 'student' learning research' and the concepts of active learning, reflective teaching and formative feedback, into our language teaching methodology.

This event is organised under the Subject Centre's Workshops to go scheme.
