Teaching Wellbeing in Context #392

Sat, Nov 21, 17:20-18:20 JST

Teacher wellbeing is not an optional extra element but the foundation of good practice. In this talk, we will explore the factors that contribute to positive teacher wellbeing focusing on aspects of the contexts and communities that can hinder or inhibit professional growth and job satisfaction. The talk will include practical suggestions for individuals and institutions to reflect upon including relationships, communication, autonomy, self-efficacy, and boundaries.

Promoting Curiosity in the Japanese EFL Classroom #396

Sun, Nov 22, 10:45-11:45 JST

As teachers of English working in a Japanese context a fundamental challenge we face is how to jump start student’s natural intrinsic motivation and help guide them on a path to become independent, autonomous learners. This presentation will discuss motivational benefits of encouraging curiosity in the language classroom while focusing on practical strategies to encourage English learners to actively engage in seeking information and knowledge. Featuring content from Smart Choice 4th edition (Oxford University Press).

Give Support in Class, Online, and Asynchronously #397

Sun, Nov 22, 17:20-18:20 JST

Non-classroom teaching is the new norm and teachers are now familiar with the challenges and (occasional) joys of working remotely with students. It’s essential that materials support teachers in these new realities, offering classroom teaching ideas but recognising that we may not be meeting students face to face regularly. This presentation will highlight aspects of Smart Choice 4th edition which can help inside and outside the classroom and autonomous features that support students working alone.

Activities and Activism for the Anthropocene #416

Sun, Nov 22, 16:45-17:45 JST

This is a workshop looking at ways in which we can use real-world experiences and environmental activities to help young learners deal with anxiety and a feeling of powerlessness in an age of crises. How can teachers and communities build and participate in projects that empower children and enable them to play their part in protecting the natural environment around them?
