Saitama JALT:

The Five Senses Workshop: An Experiential, Learner-Led Event

Date: Sunday, March 16th, 2014 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Matt Shannon and Brad Semans

Get your hands dirty with Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) in this curated event: we'll learn better ways to talk about (and enjoy) chocolate, let our nose start a conversation, outsource our brains with wooden blocks and dice, and learn to play the ukulele. It's ok, there will be elementary and junior high school students helping you along the way. Oh yeah, we're going to finish an ice cream lab, toppings and discussion to follow. CLIL engagements lend themselves to intrinsic motivation, and it is our goal that you may experience this, rather than glearn about it. In such environments, you will find your job as an educator to be move away from the teacher and towards an enabler of independently-driven learning.
