This webinar is titled:
“UPSKILL or STANDSTILL: Retooling for the future learner“
To meet the needs of tomorrow’s learner and to maintain relevance for the future job market, teachers are entering the world of business English without any background or training. It is estimated that soon 87% of global business will take place in English. Yet students, although they can speak well in day-to-day conversations, still lack the professional communication skills required by employers today. More attention to empathy, reactivity, and awareness must be realized to help future employees achieve success in the English-speaking workplace. With AI hot on our heels, learners’ need a change in teaching tactics, focus, and outcomes that most teachers aren’t prepared for. This talk will visit the problem and predict a more constructive future.
