Much of this teaching has been to adults or young adults and mostly variations of English for specific purposes, in particular – Exams, Business English and EAP.

11:00 – Talk 1: 9 effective study skills techniques

This talk focuses on 9 study skill techniques and compares the effectiveness of these compared to each other.How effective are the skills our students commonly use such as highlighting and test practice? Are there more effective techniques that are rarely taught and how can we integrated these into the classroom?

12:00 – Lunch included and time to browse the Macmillan book stand
13:00 – Talk 2: Critical thinking in learning and teaching

Critical thinking skills are a critical part of nearly all language learning environments, but even more so in an EAP setting. This session will look at what we mean by critical thinking and explores how it is involved at every stage of the teaching and learning process. It will also demonstrate some practical activities to stimulate critical thinking in the classroom.
