In this, the first of two connected webinars, we will be looking at ways that teachers can encourage students to engage with both language and topics ahead of their online lessons. We’ll consider how we can develop student autonomy through routines students can repeat, how some simple tech tools can increase engagement, and how web-based work can feed into speaking slots in class.
