Supercharging Student Motivation: The Magic of Supernormal Stimuli – a webinar by Nick Michelioudakis

Dear Colleagues,

IATEFL Poland and Nick Michelioudakis, EL Teacher Trainer

have the pleasure to invite you to the webinar

This webinar is titled:

Supercharging Student Motivation: The Magic of Supernormal Stimuli


What do puzzles, riddles and quizzes have in common? The answer is that they press a natural ‘button’ all humans have, but they press it a lot harder!

They are the intellectual equivalents of cheesecake – they are irresistible.

In this webinar, Nick is going to look at what it is that makes people become hooked on things like Sudoku or Crossword Puzzles and suggest ways of taking advantage of their addictive potential to send students’ motivational levels sky-high.

He will also be demonstrating five practical activities that you can use with your students tomorrow.

And before you ask, yes, Nick is going to tell us where to find such materials online, too.

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.
