In this situation, the right mindset may be to consider online-teaching as a new teaching platform and develop skills to maximize learning opportunities in that platform. But, what skills?! How do I set up the classroom environment? How do I facilitate students’ engagement? How do I support their linguistic development?
Join our webinar with host Silvina Zapata, the Director of the Master’s in Teaching English as a Foreign Language Program at Universidad Andrés Bello in Santiago, as she explores these questions with Dr Masatoshi Sato of the Faculty of Education and Social Sciences. He is a Professor in the Master’s in Teaching English as a Foreign Language Program at UNAB—an expert in instructed second language acquisition. He has conducted a number of research studies in the Chilean context. Professor Sato shares his experiences and knowledge related to videoconference teaching, L2 motivation, and corrective feedback, among others. Participants are encouraged to prepare and ask questions during the webinar. Open to all EFL teachers across Chile.
