Gifu JALT:

Proactive and Resonant Teaching for Value Perception Enhancement in the EFL Classroom

Date: Sunday, June 29th, 2003 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Paul Raymond Doyon

Albert Einstein stated that "Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a valuable gift and not as a hard duty." Thus, this presentation will initially focus on beliefs and perceptions - and how these can be shifted in order to enhance the perception of value in the EFL classroom. Raffini's psychoacademic needs and how these spark and fuel intrinsic motivation in the classroom will be examined with connections drawn to the following key concepts: empowerment and engagement, learned helplessness, compliance and defiance, resistance, reciprocity, and the relinquishing of control. Finally, so-called resonant leadership/teaching styles will be examined and contrasted with their opposing dissonant styles and how the right combination of all of these can positively affect the EFL classroom atmosphere.
