EVO 2018

Dear readers of this blog,

I’m happy to let you know that this year we’re running the Electronic Village Online session on Teaching listening one more time.

This is a free five-week professional development session for English teachers, during which the participants will design, try out and discuss listening activities informed by research. The session is part of this year’s Electronic Village Online.

The session will focus on the following topics:

  • Encouraging autonomous listening out of class (with a live session with Lizzie Pinard)
  • Traditional listening lesson framework: Dos and Don’ts (a live session with Elena Wilkinson)
  • Critical thinking and high order thinking (HOT) listening tasks (a live session with Jennie Wright)
  • Beyond the comprehension approach: decoding skills (a live session with Richard Cauldwell)
  • Practical activities for teaching listening decoding skills (my live session)

We ran this session last year and this was an incredible experience. We had a vibrant community of more than fifty English teachers sharing their teaching ideas and favourite listening resources, and we received very positive feedback from the participants, who rated the session at 5.0 out of 5.0.
