Online Language Teaching: Creating a dynamic learning environment – a webinar by Emily Clark

Dear Colleagues,

IATEFL Poland, region Krakow and Emily Clark, Assistant Language Specialist at the University of Kansas    

have the pleasure to invite you to the webinar which will take place on 10th November, Tuesday, from 20.30 to 21.30 CET.

“Online Language Teaching: Creating a dynamic learning environment”

Brief summary:  

Online language teaching is a new environment for instructor-led language teaching. Teacher-centered approaches with present, practice, produce or even more communicative practices do not automatically translate into an online environment. Adapting to online teaching requires flexible and differentiated techniques that fit all learners.

In this presentation, the participants will learn more about practices for engagement and designing activities to build online community. Participants will leave with ideas on how to create active online lessons, how to create a differentiated environment, how to use effective methodology for online teaching, and how to capitalize on technology to enhance online learning. 

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


IATEFL Poland members have priority of registration for this webinar. Do not delay. The number of participants is limited.
