Mario Lecluyze: Small tasters from Oxford

Presentation focus

With the financial support of Erasmus+, Mario Lecluyze was able to attend the Oxford Teachers’ Academy Summer School at Worcester College in July 2015. In small tutorial groups and with teachers from all around the globe different aspects of teaching English as a foreign language were covered. Mario has made a selection of ten practical and easy-to-use ideas that could be useful for your teaching practice. Participants will experience the ideas as if they were pupils. After each activity, we will reflect on it.

Why have you chosen this topic for your presentation?

A good CPD-session should offer participants practical and easy-to-use ideas for the classroom practice. The ideas in this session are taken from the Oxford Teachers Academy Summer School.

What do you want participants to take away from your presentation?

Participants can use the ideas in their teaching practice. Experiencing the activities as the students do, will also encourage expert reflection and sharing ideas from their own teaching.
