Taller 1: “How to Teach Presentation Skills”


Resumen: “Giving presentations is an important professional skill; with a growing international community, presenting in English is essential for business people, researchers, and educators. Students need to practice this skill in the English language classroom, but what kinds of activities are most effective? How can students feel comfortable, be organized, sound fluent, and present information clearly? By providing opportunities to practice and a variety of feedback methods. Come ready to talk!”

Taller 2: “How to Organize Moderated Discussions (Group Work)” 


Resumen: “The moderated discussion is a format for oral interaction. In this model, the student can either be the leader or a participant giving input on a particular issue.  In the academic environment, it is an excellent way for students to gain practice with the vocabulary and terminology needed for their specific fields of study. This workshop will demonstrate the basics of organizing content-specific moderated discussions. Participants will engage in some mini-discussions, and appropriate phrases and techniques will be presented.”
