Due to the pandemic, this year's ETD will be a virtual event.
All the workshops will be offered twice, once from 13:00 – 14:30 and again from 15:00 –16:30.
Teaching Key Competencies in the Teenage ELT Classroom
In this session, Dr Puchta will elaborate on how you can successfully teach English, while your students develop the key competencies specified by the Ministry of Education. These key competencies involve developing students' cultural awareness, helping them learn to learn and to become active and responsible members of society. You will see how combining these objectives with sharply focused language teaching can create more meaningful and memorable learning experiences for your students.
