Share and Get Feedback Courses

We all know that a key part of our professional development involves sharing what we are doing as teachers or writers and getting feedback on what you and other teachers are doing. In these innovative new 10-week courses on Zoom, you’ll be able to do just that! Each course starts with an orientation week to establish a framework for evaluating and reflecting on your teaching or materials writing. Using our course platform we will share participants material, or recordings that they want to discuss, and each week up to two people will present their lessons for discussion and feedback from the group and your Lexical Lab tutor. Additional suggestions, links or discussion will then be provided through our course platform.

Self-study and Zoom Courses

Plan smarter and get the most from your coursebook

Understand how coursebooks are organised and how they relate to the way students learn languages, so that you can plan your lessons smartly and add real value to the material.

Zoom course runs from 2pm Tuesday 28th September

I’m really pleased with it. Sometimes I go back to it and try to recall things. One thing I found extremely helpful was affordances. I love it how I can just take a single glimpse at a sentence or word and add extra value. It works out quite well.

Teaching languages at low levels

In this course you’ll understand how a traditional grammar-led syllabus can fail to address the real problems for new learners of a foreign language. We’ll show you how an approach focused on enabling real communication can bring benefits in terms of more motivating lessons and overall outcomes.

Zoom course runs from 2pm Tuesday 23rd November

I loved the course because not many people speak about beginners as people with a background and opinions. I watched everyday the videos after teaching beginner classes and felt that everything the teacher was saying made so much sense and was attainable. Most importantly: I couldn’t wait to try it out with my students the next day!

Great course for those who have never taught beginners or are simply feeling a bit rusty from not teaching the level for some time. Loved working with Andrew and a group of professional, dedicated colleagues.
Thanks

Teaching Listening Better

This course is designed to help you help your students listen – and hear – better. It gives you tricks, tools and techniques to take into your classroom and shows you how to get more out of the listening lessons in whatever coursebook you use.

Zoom course runs from 2pm Tuesday 26th October

Writing a series of lessons

If you write material for students or want to produce special lesson for your students, then this is the course for you. You’ll learn how to think about good outcomes for your lesson(s) and write speaking tasks to match them, We’ll then look at how you can research language before seeing how you can’t write tasks, exercises and texts to help students reach their goals.

Motivation and creating better learners

In this course, we will look at how what we do in class can demonstrate and enable better approaches to learning that students can take outside the class. We’ll also teach you a variety of activities and tools that can replace boring workbook exercises that will motivate students to work with language on their own, making them more autonomous and better learners

These courses are currently in preparation and will be coming online over the next six months, but if you would like to register your interest please email andrew@lexicallab.com and I will inform you when we are ready to take bookings.
