Gifu JALT:

Wh's of Our Profession

Date: Saturday, November 16th, 2013 Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Speaker: Umida Ashurova (Nanzan University)

This workshop will focus on professional development in ELT by making distinctions between two streams: Teaching Knowledge (What to teach? and Why to teach?) and Teaching Practice (How to teach?). It will underline current widespread attention on the former, and will argue for the need to afford equal importance to the latter. Participants will reflect on their teaching using SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) analysis and learn several TP techniques that can lead to happier classrooms and greater job satisfaction.
