The Cambridge English Teachmeet

Cambridge ESOL teachmeetYour top tips to engage and motivate learners

Got a classroom activity to share with other practitioners, but don’t feel ready to deliver a workshop? After the success of last year's first ever Teachment, NATECLA, in collaboration with Cambridge English are excited to bring delegates the same event (with a different theme) for the second year running - a series of snappy 3 minute presentations where you can share your most effective ideas for engaging and motivating learners and get some great ideas from other delegates.

  • When: Friday 26 June 2015, 20:00 - 21:00
  • Where: NATECLA's 2015 National Conference, Queen Mary's University, Mile End, London, E1 4NS
Your 3 minute presentation on engaging and motivating learners could include one of the following themes:
  • Games and classroom activities to liven up the language classroom
  • Motivating homework ideas
  • Lively lesson warmers
  • Reward or points systems
  • Classroom feedback ideas
  • Making Individual Learning Plans work for students
  • Using differentiation effectively in mixed ability classes 
  • Any other ideas that have worked to motivate your students
