This 29 November will see Oxford University Press’ second ever Webinar Day take place. Last March saw our first Webinar Day and it was a roaring success: 1,232 teachers took part in our flagship Professional Development event and this time around we want to see even more of you take part. The theme of the day is “Collaborative Learning” and we are sure that our experts will bring this topic alive in a day of informative, inspiring, and practical webinars.
Collaborative learning is rooted in sociocultural and constructivist ideas of education, emphasizing as it does a communicative and learner-centred approach in the classroom. Whether you are interested in finding out more about this dynamic methodology or looking to improve your collaborative classes, our Webinar Day is perfect for you. We have all teaching contexts covered: Robin Walker starts the day at 12:00 with his talk, Making Projects Work, aimed at teachers of adult learners. Then at 17:00, Donna Fields looks at the subject from a secondary perspective with her talk Scaffolding in a Collaborative Context. Primary teachers then have the chance, at 18:00, to attend Let’s celebrate! – culture and language go hand-in-hand with Vanessa Reilly. Nina Lauder wraps up proceedings with the final talk of the day, From Topics to Projects, at 19:00, a look at collaborative learning in the Pre-Primary classroom.
If that wasn’t appealing enough, we will also be giving away a bundle of Oxford University Press Professional Development titles to one lucky webinar attendee!
Sign up now for the Webinar Day, and we’ll see you soon for what promises to be a fantastic day of webinars celebrating Oxford University Press’ ongoing commitment to excellent professional development throughout Spain.
