About the Course

Language of Instruction: English

Course Description

In this webinar, Kieran will focus upon values and perceptions we hold as individuals and how they influence the culture within a classroom for both teachers and learners. Using examples of previous projects, such as www.kdhculturechat.blogspot.com, we will consider how a project can help students develop a more sensitive and thorough understanding of the content they are working with. Kieran will suggest projects to try out with your own learners and discuss how to design and carry out a simple project of your own.
