Encouraging learners to explore the language through creative activities in class is not as difficult as it may at first appear. This webinar will firstly look at the barriers to creativity, then how might overcome such hindrances. The session will round off with a number of easily adaptable activities which facilitate creative thinking.

Date: 24th October 2013

Theme: Every time our learners speak in a new language, they are essentially exploring their creativity. Nevertheless, all too often these are lost opportunities, both for us as teachers and for our learners. It is all too easy to get bogged down in getting through a task and moving on to the next bit of language to be learned, and what we sacrifice is the creative spark of the people whose language skills we are trying to develop.

About the speaker: Adam has been fortunate enough to spend the last twelve years of his journey as a life long learner working with others in what some call the ‘language classroom’. He is currently privileged to have the opportunity to help young adults meet their educational goals at Sabanci University in Istanbul. His professional interests include flexibility within the curriculum and the considered use of technology in the classroom.

Hi, may I guess the time is 12 PM British time? Thank you

Sorry, yes I was right, I realised what BST stands for. Thanks!

I don't think you'll need to register for my webinar, but the number of attendees will probably be redistricted to 100, so it might fill up at some point.

Dear Sirs or Madams,
I am very sorry to say that I was not successfully logged to the webinar, the link took me to Adobe and there appeared a message saying the session would start at 12:00 P.M. which was the time I tried and never logged me in. Will you have a recording available? I really hope so.
Thanks for your attention.

Dear Mariteremelm

Thank you for getting in touch. Unfortunately, we had to postpone the webinar for technical reasons. However, it has been rescheduled and we will now have the webinar on Thursday 24th October at 12pm UK time.

Best wishes

Paul
