Description

DESCRIPTION

Teaching House Presents is a series of professional development and networking events for English language educators throughout London and the South East.

Wednesday 13th December's event will include a brief welcome and two professional development sessions with a short break between the two for refreshments and networking.

18.45-19.00 - Welcome and networking

19.00-19.45 - To be confirmed - Ben Feben

19.45 - 20.00 - Refreshments

20.00-21.00 - Images and language teaching - Andrew Walkley

In this talk, I'll discuss the value of images in English teaching. I'll show how thinking about principles regarding language, learning and classroom practice affect materials writing and how you use images when teaching. I hope you'll leave with a couple of thoughts provoked and some practical ideas to employ.
