27-28 March 2015 (Part 1)
24-25 April 2015 (Part 2)
The two-part ‘Developing a Dynamic Classroom’ course is aimed at helping develop and modernise your classroom skills through multiple different technologies. Looking at lessons from both the teacher and learner perspective, by the end of each weekend you will have new ideas and activities to test out back in your school.
Part 1 focuses on materials selection and use with an emphasis on the ways in which you can make technology really work for you, from developing simple PowerPoint presentations, to creating your own authentic materials to enhance learning. Part 2 focuses on the learner’s role in the classroom, and how you can improve their learning through building their motivation and engagement with meaningful activities. You will leave this course with multiple activities that you can use immediately back in your classroom, and continue to develop.
The course is most suitable for current teachers of Mandarin (at primary and secondary levels), however PGCE students and other teachers are welcome to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if they are also suitable.
