Online Seminars In May

We are delighted to announce that Macmillan Education is planning a series of the following online seminars in May

1)Feedback that Empowers by Kateryna Protsenko

Date: 6 May, 13:00 & 19:00 Tbilisi Time

Agenda:

For many students, feedback is the most valuable part of learning and is often one of the reasons why they choose one-to-one classes over group classes. When participating in surveys on customer satisfaction, students often say that they would like to have more feedback from their teachers. It’s clear that feedback is a lot more than simple error correction and praise for some good language – but what else does it include?

In this seminar we will look at what feedback is, what aspects of learning we can and should give feedback on and how to do that. There are lots of things to take into account when giving feedback, including task setting, students’ effort, level of challenge etc. – we will also look at those things which we should be keeping in mind when giving feedback. Finally, in the light of the current situation with COVID-19 and the fact that learning has moved online and we will inevitable have to teach some of our classes online from now on, we will examine how feedback online differs from feedback given face-to-face.

2)Online lessons that are active and interactive by Laura Patsko

Date: 12 May, 13:00 & 19:00 Tbilisi Time

Agenda:

These days, more and more teachers and learners are finding ourselves spending the majority of our days online – planning lessons, doing self-study or attending live synchronous classes. We can look on the bright side and say, “Well, if we have to be locked down at home, at least we have the technology nowadays to keep us connected.” But there’s no denying that, for many people, sitting and staring at a computer screen for long periods every day is not very motivating or healthy (either mentally or physically). So how can we boost levels of energy and engagement in our live classes? This seminar will demo a few tips and tricks, and invite teachers who have recently moved their classes online to share their own insights.

3) Moving you school online by Chris Farrell

Date: 13 May, 13:00 & 19:00 Tbilisi Time

Agenda:

This session will look at the practicalities of moving your whole school apparatus into an online context. The content of this webinar forms the basis for an upcoming online course from NILE with the same title. The premise is that, in the current climate, many of us have been forced to move online quickly, and this course will offer guidance on how to do it properly. The course is rooted in accreditation criteria from Eaquals and the Aqueduto QA Framework and will look at the key areas which make a school successful and the considerations in transferring these areas into an online context. This session will cover considerations in the areas of Teaching and Learning, Quality Assurance, Safeguarding, and Assessment and offer some practical tips in each area.
