Has the pleasure to announce its first 2011 workshop:
Promoting cultural values and positive attitudes in our students
Currently, important work is being done in the ELT arena to increase understanding of cultural values and attitudes and to see how they are reflected in behaviour.
Using recently research done on Intercultural Competence, (Byram, M. 2010. Linguistic and intercultural education for Building and Citizenship) the presenters will show the qualities of people who work successfully across cultures, key qualities such as openness to others, curiosity about other cultures, tolerance of difference, flexibility, empathy, communicative awareness and willingness to embrace change Critical cultural awareness, critical language development, cultural personal development raise a sequence of questions? "What have I learned about the target culture? What have I learned about my own culture? How will it change what I think, what I say and what I do?" How will I transmit effectively to my students in such a way that I can see change e.g. ?genuine motivation to read?, but what?s more important, to raise not only their language level but also their self and soul esteem.
That's changing attitudes and mindsets..In this workshop, we will present the corresponding Theoretical Framework with six activities to work with our students which prove that promoting values and positive attitudes is absolutely possible!
