主題: Enhancing Communicative Competence through Cooperative Learning 

主講者: 梁彩玲 博士

In this workshop, participants are going to learn how to implement communicative language teaching through the teaching system of cooperative learning. The workshop will start from the comprehensive definition of communicative competence in the four areas of linguistic, sociolinguistic, discoursal, and strategic competence. Based upon the understanding of communicative competence, attention will be brought to the pedagogical implications of Communicative Language Teaching: (1) appropriateness vs. grammaticality, (2) fluency vs. accuracy, (3) active participation vs. passive reception. Finally, key elements of cooperative learning will be presented to distinguish cooperative learning from group learning.

主題:Why Are Activities Important in Language learning Classroom

主講者:Lisa Huang

Language learning is a hard task. Due to the limited time of the syllabus and curriculum, it might be a challenge for teachers to add some activities in class.

One useful strategy to encourage language acquisition is using language activities. While using activities in the classroom, it is helpful for teachers to have a complete understanding of students’ learning. Teachers can also consider the benefits of activities: the skills to capture students’ attention; lower students’ stress; and give students the chance for real communication.
