Workshops in Wrocław with Susan Holden 14.03.2020

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to join us

on Saturday March 14th, 2020 at 10.00 a.m.

at THE DEPARTMENT OF FOREIGN LANGUAGES,

WROCŁAW UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY,

BUILDING H-4

ul. Wybrzeże Wyspiańskiego 8, 50-370 Wrocław

for two workshops with SUSAN HOLDEN:

1/ USING PROJECTS TO BUILD PERSONAL, ORGANISATIONAL AND PRESENTATION SKILLS

Projects can enrich language learning while increasing the students’ cultural and crosscultural awareness. They can build on individual interests and experiences, while providing opportunities for group organisation and presentation skills. However, they need careful planning and integration into the overall teaching and learning objectives.

This interactive session aims to discuss ways of identifying and using projects within the context of the participants’ individual teaching situations.

2/ TEACHING ENGLISH IN A GLOBAL WORLD: THE CULTURE AND LANGUAGE INTERFACE

The use of English as a global language for communication implies a need for an increasing awareness of cultural and crosscultural differences. What causes misunderstanding and incomprehension: language or culture? How important are body language and gesture? How can the style of written language be misinterpreted?

This interactive session discusses practical ways of exploring the link between language and personal behaviour in different contexts.

Susan Holden has a long and varied experience as a teacher, trainer, magazineeditor, publisher and writer in a variety of contexts. She first visited Poland in 1991, later working on a textbook project there as well as returning recently for various conferences. Among other things, she is co-author of ‘Teaching English Today: contexts and objectives’, Swan Communication 2019.
