Humanism in the Classroom: what it means in practice

Humanism in the Classroom: what it means in practice

Workshop info

We’ll start in workshop mode with participants answering, for themselves, some straightforward questions about their own practices. From there we’ll move to a brief presentation about the roots of Humanism and how these influences have played out in language teaching and learning. We’ll then consider some of the obstacles to implementing a humanistic approach and ways of overcoming them. The session will continue in breakout groups with participants’ voices sharing their own ideas and intentions for their future classes, followed by a short final round-up of key points.
