Indirect Learning Strategies

June 8 @ 15:00 - 18:00

Please note: This in-person event will be preceded at 2:30 p.m by a meet-and-greet session with coffee and cake.

Summary

In this hands-on workshop we will look at what is meant by indirect learning strategies and their importance in encouraging effective language learners. Participants will take part in a variety of activities that will develop the use of indirect strategies in our ELT classrooms and leave with a sound knowledge of what LS are, some food for thought as well as something fun to try in class on Monday.

Rebecca Oxford (1) classified indirect strategies in three groups; metacognitive strategies including planning and evaluating learning, affective strategies that deal with anxiety and encouragement, and social strategies which help improve social skills such as cooperation and empathy. We will look at why these skills are so important in the language classroom and give practical activity ideas that will enhance their use.
