Enhancing modern foreign languages teaching for new tutors
Date: 23 September, 2009
Location: SR 1.06 Business School, University of Leeds, Leeds
Event type: Workshop
This event offers a forum for new and experienced tutors to share ideas and innovation in the teaching of modern languages. The day will take the format of a series of workshops focusing on ‘lesson planning in language teaching’, ‘student participation and motivation’ and ‘feedback and assessment’. There will also be opportunity for participants to deliver a ‘mini-lesson’ and receive feedback from the group, and a question and answer session will facilitate further discussion between colleagues. The event aims to provide new tutors and language assistants with a thorough induction to the principles of language teaching and to encourage good practice in MFL teaching in Higher Education. Registration is open to anyone from a UK university with language teaching responsibility, although as places are limited, priority will be given to new language tutors and assistants.
£10 per person (to be paid beforehand when registering for the event direct to LLAS).
Lunch will be provided.
A travel bursary is available for this event.
