have the pleasure to invite you to the webinar which will take place on Monday, 23rd November, from 20.30 to 21.30

“EAP: Explicitly Acquiring Practical Skills in the English Classroom”

Finish the statement: an independent student who thinks critically…

Critical thinking is a valuable skill not only in academic study, but also in everyday life. Although we often hear that, as teachers, we need to incorporate more activities fostering this skill in the classroom, there seems to be some kind of mystery about what exactly critical thinking involves and how to teach it. In this webinar, we’d like to show you why it’s best to work on critical thinking and study skills in an explicit way, and that it can be done through enjoyable and engaging communicative activities. We’re going to use examples from National Geographic Learning course Pathways for EAP (English for Academic Purposes).
