Hokkaido JALT:

Creating Creative Classes

Date: Saturday, July 26th, 2014 Time: 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Speaker: Robert Olson (Tomakomai Komazawa University)

This user-friendly workshop will focus on helping language teachers create materials and resources that will shoot the class learning factor and fun factor through the roof. We will practice drawing/cartooning while making flashcards, posters, games and activities that will be applicable to university and adult students as well as younger children. Artistic teachers will enjoy this class but teachers who can't draw a straight line to save their lives will enjoy it even more!

Robert Olson is an associate professor at Tomakomai Komazawa University who has been teaching English to students from kindergarten age to adults since 1991. He is the author of Cultural Dinosaur and Cultural Dinosaur 2, a collection of comics that compare and contrast American and Japanese culture.
