Acerca de este evento

The seminar will take place on Thursday, 27th February, in Colegio Armonía.

Alejandra Ottolina - What we all need to know about critical thinking

Although most of us have read or heard about Critical Thinking, we very often fail to translate it into enough effective classroom action. Have you ever thought why? What are the factors at play? What subskills are involved in the promotion of critical thinking? How can we establish a connection between the teaching of grammar, vocabulary and the skills on the one hand, and the development of critical thinking on the other?

In this session, we will start by defining skills and subskills, and discussing their implications in the learning process. We will then work on effective strategies to enhance students’ ability to think critically as they learn language content.

About the speaker

Alejandra is a highly experienced teacher trainer who has taught all levels in both public and private sectors. She has lectured in Argentina as well as in neighbouring countries, and has authored several Teacher’s Books: For Winners, Insights and Phases, among others. She is Macmillan’s Academic Consultant and is currently doing a degree in Educational Therapy.

Alastair Grant - Collaborative Learning

Since the advent of the Communicative Approach, we teachers have been told that the era of “chalk and talk” is over. But how can we apply this, when we are seeking to fulfill both the needs of our students and the expectations of the curriculum?

In this session, we will explore how we can meet the demands of all stakeholders in education, helping our students to learn collaboratively and making ourselves as teachers “progressively unnecessary”.

About the speaker
