About this webinar
In the first three webinars on Creativity, we explored creative task design which encourages creative, meaningful, and highly personalised output. But the story doesn’t end there! Student output needs feedback, and this includes feedback on task completion, on the learning process and on language – after all, we are language teachers! Feedback can be driven by the teacher, by our classmates and we can also encourage students to self-reflect. How can this be done creatively?
In this webinar, we explore:
- What to give feedback on
- Creative ways to give feedback to our students
- Creative ways to encourage peer feedback and self-reflection
Recorded on Wednesday 27 July 2022

About the speakers
I’m Claire and I have worked in EFL/ESL as a teacher, trainer, manager and consultant worldwide, but mainly in the UK, Australia, Colombia and Greece. I have always been interested in inspiring students and teachers, so teacher development has always been my area of interest and career path. I’ve been very privileged to have worked with teachers all over the world in their contexts. I’m interested in student-centred learning, fostering creativity and critical-thinking in the classroom, reflective practice, and adapting materials to create a more dynamic and engaging learning experience. I also actively support inclusive classroom practices for all English teachers and students. I am co-founder and director of eltonix (www.eltonix.com)
I’m Sarah and I have worked as an EFL/ESL teacher in Senegal, Japan, Ecuador and Turkey. I was a teacher and mentor in Thailand and France and am now based in Greece where I initially worked as an academic manager and a teacher trainer. My areas of interest are teacher training and development, reflective practice, student-centred learning, holistic child development, incorporating life skills in the classroom and encouraging a sense of progress through learning to learn techniques. I am also an advocate for inclusive classroom practices which provide a safe learning environment for all teachers and students. I am co-founder and director of eltonix (www.eltonix.com)
