Teachers interested in TBLT, action-oriented approach, task-based syllabus design, task-outcome assessment, the communicative approach, a task complexity syllabus, and themed instruction will benefit. Get practical and pedagogically-sound ideas on how to target creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving through group discussions, presentations, interviews, self- and peer-evaluation.
