Promoting Creativity in Digital Learning
About the webinar
With many of us making the shift to remote teaching and learning it seems all the more important to remember to maintain the human aspect of language learning. What could be more human than the need to create? In this session Nik Peachey will share ideas, exercises and activities which foster our students’ creativity and enable them to use language in a creative way. The activities will show how the remote classroom can be leveraged to make language learning and use a creative and engaging experience.
Date: Thursday 25 February 2021
