Killing two birds with one stone

Cooperative Learning in the English Language Classroom

Kursnummer: 19.02.05


This workshop will focus on a language learning approach that simultaneously fosters the development of social and interpersonal skills. Cooperative language learning (CLL) has been shown to benefit learning and learners on a number of levels: It can improve motivation for learning among students, foster collaborative learning, improves self-confidence and practices interpersonal skills (Oxford, 1997). This workshop will give insight into how CLL overlaps with the new LiLe curriculum and provide a roadmap for it ’s successful implementation in the English Language classroom. This non-frontal form of teaching is particularly well suited to team teaching with Assistants.
