In coordination with the British, the English Department at Hebron University started a series of workshops on class management and methods of teaching English language in addition to communication skills between students and teachers. The workshop started on Sunday 20/1/2013 and will continue till Thursday 24/1/2013.
Dr. Mohammad Farrah (Chairman of English Department) and Mr. Abd El-Karim Haddad (Workshop Coordinator) opened the workshops in the presence of (25) students (Fourth years students) in addition to a number of faculty staff from the English Department and the Language Center. The trainer in these workshops is Julietta Schoenmann who has extensive teacher training experience.
These workshops aim to prepare students soon to graduate from the English department by introducing them to ways of understanding English language that will help learners, and methods of teaching that allow students to comprehend English and practice skills in the classroom.
These workshops will include a brief introduction to the main skills that learners need to communicate. Trainees will be encouraged to focus on how they can enable learners to use English for meaningful communication. This will include the use of English in the classroom, presenting new language, giving instructions, and how to stage a lesson. The training will incorporate methods that demonstrate ways by which teachers can maintain students’ interest and involvement.
