Using CLIL in ELT classes: exploring the relevance of Content and Language Integrated Learning for English Language Teaching

This talk will explore how the principles and characteristics of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) might be relevant to ELT. Rather than focus on so-called ‘soft’ or language-led CLIL as the most useful way of CLILing up English language lessons, the talk instead seeks to examine how ‘hard’ CLIL, in which the learning is led by the subject content, draws on principles that can be important as well for language teachers. The aim will be to adapt certain CLIL concepts to an ELT context: this will include considering design principles for teaching and learning materials, ways to approach the sequencing of learning, and approaches to developing higher order thinking within ELT lessons.

12.05 - 12.35

Gamifying homework

How can we get students to use their smartphones to keep on learning out of class? We look at some free web tools, and consider how to integrate them into a school-wide gamified system. This helps to structure and motivate students' independent learning, and complement a classroom-based course.

Or not to test?!

Any language teacher knows that students hate traditional tests. And that testing has come under massive attack in recent years.  This said, we also know that a typical learner does want to know whether s/he is making any progress. How can we reconcile all of this? What alternatives have we got? Are such alternatives time-consuming and difficult to orchestrate – or can they actually make our workload lighter? Come along to find out, and to sample some tried-and-tested alternative testing and assessment techniques, tricks, and lifehacks.
