2. Teaching the four skills - training webinars
Our series of Transformative Teachers webinars from 2018 offers teachers insights into how students learn English language reading, writing, speaking and listening skills and looks at practical ways teachers can help students to improve.
Whilst the content refers to Trinity exams, it also supports teachers’ professional development and can help improve everyday teaching practices for integrating and teaching all four skills.
Each summary page contains an introductory video, an informative discussion, and notes from the previous webinar.
3. Evidence-based teaching - learning resource
Evidence-based teaching refers to teaching strategies that derive from, or are informed by, objective evidence such as educational research and performance metrics. Adopting evidence-based teaching strategies has shown noticeable ‘effect’ size improvements in students’ performance. The bigger the effect size, the greater the improvements in performance. It can also refer to more qualitative research as well.
