Facilitated by Genny Ballard (Centre), Florin Beschea (Davidson), Mark Preslar (Sewanee) and Susanna Weygandt (Sewanee).
This Workshop is organized as a Teach & Tell for making online language teaching engaging through activities that hone second language speaking, writing, reading, and listening skills. Through short teaching demonstrations, we will share mixed content- and communicative-based approaches to activities that use synchronous and asynchronous elements. Instructors and students share control of the screen and interact in Zoom breakout rooms, and often students are matched with native speakers, acquiring grammar through content-based discussions. We will give instructions and approaches to scaffolding content, links to videos, and Powerpoints. We invite participants to share elements of their teaching related to communicative and scaffolded techniques.
