Nik Peachey (OUP) – AI in the Classroom: Challenges and Opportunities
During this presentation we will look at some of the ways different generative AI resources can impact on the way we teach, learn and develop as language teachers.
We will explore a number of issues around the use of AI in language learning and teaching and look at how it can be used in a positive way to help save teachers’ time and deliver more personalised and differentiated learning for students. They will become aware of some of the challenges and issues that the use of AI raises in the language classroom and they will be able to develop their understanding of how to deal with these issues.
Alex Warren (National Geographic Learning) – For What it’s Earth - Incorporating Sustainability Education into EAP Classrooms
Teaching English is no longer just teaching English. We must also prepare students with the skills, values and knowledge to contribute to a global society. With examples from National Geographic Learning titles, in this session we’ll explore how we can incorporate education for sustainable development into our language classes, and in doing so truly prepare our students for their futures.
What is ETD?
The English Teachers' Day (ETD)'s objectives are:
to share and exchange ideas, material(s) in view of an evolving teaching and learning environment
to engage teachers in their realities and discuss and clarify these realities
to adapt teaching methods to new emergent social and educational contexts
to establish a strong, effective professional learning community (PLC)
to prepare the future of English teaching and learning in Luxembourg
The organizing team: Marie-Jo Decker (LAML), Liz Heiter (LMRL), Chris Bebing (LAM), Chris Pesch (LCE)
Since its inaugural edition in 2010, the English Teachers' Day has been proud to attract some of the most respected voices in the field of ELT to come to Luxembourg.
Keynote speakers have included Charles Alderson (in 2012), Gary Anderson (in 2015), Catherine Butler (in 2014), David Crystal (in 2016), Edmund Dudley (in 2016), Jamie Keddie (in 2014), Philip Kerr (in 2015), Hania Kryszewa (in 2011), John Mikton (in 2018), Keith Morrow (in 2010), Amoz Paran (in 2012 and 2017), Michael Swan (in 2011), Shaun Wilden (in 2018) and Shelley Wong (in 2014).
On top of these there have been countless great workshops led by guests from abroad, as well as many talented local teachers.
The English Teachers' Day could not take place without the cooperation and generous help of various partners.
