Description
In this workshop, the participants will:
  • be introduced to principles that underlie catering for learner diversity and models for oral communication;
  • experience a range of speaking activities which cater for a diverse range of learning needs in whole-class situations;
  • explore the use of e-learning tools and multimedia applications in their preparation and delivery of a speech/presentation; and
  • consider different assessment strategies when promoting effective oral communication skills.

    Remarks
  • This is a 6-hour blended workshop made up of three parts.

     1) Part I is the pre-workshop component with learning material accessible to the participants on the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS). They will learn about (1) the basic principles of differentiation; and (2) models for oral communication. The activities in this session take roughly 2.5 hours to complete. Part I is a pre-requisite to joining Part II.

     2) Part II is a 2.5-hour face-to-face or Zoom workshop, in which participants will revisit the ideas introduced in Session 1, apply them in English language learning and teaching, and experience a range of speaking activities which cater for diverse student ability levels. If the face-to-face mode is adopted, this component of the workshop will take place in the NET Section, Rm 1120, 11/F, Tsuen Wan Multi-storey Carpark Building, 174-208 Castle Peak Rd, Tsuen Wan, New Territories.

     3) In Part III, the participants will explore the use of various e-learning tools and multimedia applications in completing individual tasks on the Canvas LMS. The activities in this session take roughly 1 hour to complete.

  • Participants are required to complete ALL three parts to earn the 6 CPD hours.
  • Participants will be sent the Canvas code on 5 March 2021 for Event AA and on 17 June 2021 for Event AB.
  • This workshop will provide the participants with the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills to design learning activities that support the development of effective oral communication skills.
  • It is strongly recommended that you participate in the Part II Zoom session in a quiet room with a strong WiFi connection and with a laptop that has a built-in camera and microphone.
