Beware the comfort zone – a webinar by Geoff Tranter

Dear Colleagues,

IATEFL Poland, region Krakow and Geoff Tranter, Freelance Consultant in the field of Language Training, Language Testing and Teacher-Training,

have the pleasure to invite you to the fourth webinar in the 2021/22 series

took place 13th October 2021, from 20.30 to 21.30 CET.

This webinar is titled:

Beware the comfort zone

Brief summary:

According to the Cambridge Dictionary, comfort zones occur when people feel too comfortable, and their abilities and determination are not being tested. If teachers and/or students remain within their comfort zones, progress will be endangered. We will consider some (typical?) language classroom scenarios and discuss practical strategies to counteract the negative consequences of comfort zones.

After the webinar all participants will receive a certificate of participation.
