April 2022 PD Event:
Microteaching to Build Confidence and Skills in Speaking!
On April 9, 2022 at 11:00 AM
Are you interested in providing your learners a structured and safe opportunity to practice speaking and communication skills? If so, join this interactive workshop to learn how to include microteaching opportunities into your class. You will also learn about the BOPPPS model for lesson planning and speaking, which can be used by learners in their microteaching practice. To ensure you are building a safe and effective space, perhaps even a courageous space, for your learners, we will conclude the workshop by sharing norms and expectations for providing and receiving peer feedback, and discuss how best to facilitate learners to do this for one another.
