HIGH IMPACT TEACHING: THE WHY, WHAT, AND HOW

Plenary session with Marta Rosińska & Grzegorz Śpiewak

Foreign language teaching in the second decade of the 21st century should not be about endlessly seeing ‘ELT gimmicks and gadgets’- novel ways to please our students. Rather, it is at its best when it dares set high standards of achievement, built upon the teacher’s credibility, understanding of how learning happens, a clear sense of direction, constructive feedback, and last but not least a healthy relationship with the learners. Easier said than done? Come and let us share our experience in how this can actually be done behind your classroom doors. 

In our session you will learn:

  • what constitutes the philosophy behind high impact teaching
  • why pre-teaching thinking is a must in education
  • what is the difference between occupying and engaging your students…
  • why how impact teachers succeed on all the fronts
