Base metal into gold: Human-to-human classroom communication
In a profession increasingly dominated by technology, there is a danger that the immediacy of human-to-human classroom communication will become sidelined. This practical workshop will focus on a variety of simple, person-based activities  (“base metal”) and show how these can transform into high-yield, memorable and effective language experiences (“gold”). We’ll also reflect on why such activities can be both enriching and productive.
