Free Teacher Development Workshops this March

We are pleased to announce the return of our free teacher workshops at Oxford TEFL Barcelona!

These workshops are open to any ELT teacher who would like to develop their skills, pick up some practical tips and network with other teachers in the city.

This is your chance to learn from experienced teachers and get some hands-on training completely free of charge.

It’s also a great opportunity to visit our modern school and check out its lovely garden. We even throw in free coffee and snacks to keep those energy levels high between sessions!

You can sign up to as many workshops as you like.

Choose from:

Friday March 3rd

Session 1 (11:00 – 11:45)

Micro-Writing: Sneaky Tips to Get Students who Hate Writing, Writing! 

Having trouble motivating students to write? In this workshop you’ll learn about the wonderful world of micro-writing and discover how it can boost your students’ writing skills. You’ll walk away with practical tips and activity ideas that will get your students writing straight away. – Sophie Wilmot, Oxford House Teacher

Session 2 (12:15 – 13:00)

Recycling language with higher-level learners.

In this workshop we’ll look at why it’s important to recycle language in the classroom. We’ll share some tips and you’ll come away with a selection of quick and easy but effective activities to incorporate into your own lessons. – Keava O’Brien, Oxford House Teacher and Oxford TEFL DipTESOL graduate

Friday March 10th

Session 1 (11:00 – 11:45)

Games Unchained

As teachers, we are often on the look out for ways to improve motivation and thus improve learner outcomes. Gamification is a great strategy to help students with their deeper learning and distract them from the fact they are in class and have to learn something new again. In this workshop we will explore some new ways to make learning exciting by gamifying parts of our lessons! No matter if you are teaching Young Learners, teens, adults, General English, exam classes… there will be something for everyone! – Damian Szerszen, Oxford House Teacher and DipTESOL trainee

Session 2 (12:15 – 13:00)

Rethinking Listening Lessons

If you and your students are tired of the same approach to listening lessons, join me as I demonstrate a variety of micro-listening lessons which will not only help to improve your students´ listening but also add variety and fun to developing this essential skill! – Sinead Collins, Oxford House Teacher and DipTESOL graduate

Friday March 17th

Session 1 (11:00 – 11:45)

Practical Punctuation

Even experienced teachers often say that they lack ideas for integrating pronunciation work into their lessons. In this session, we will see a selection of hands-on activities which will help your students improve their skills in this important area. Whatever the level you’re teaching, you’ll come away with a range of ideas you can put into practice during your next class. – Duncan Foord, Oxford TEFL Director

Session 2 (12:15 – 13:00)

Getting AI to Work for You

Many teachers are justifiably concerned about the negative impacts that AI can have on learning and teaching, but it’s not all doom and gloom. In this workshop we’ll look at principles for using AI in English lessons and explore activities that will get AI to work for us, not against us. – Rubens Heredia, Oxford TEFL CELTA Tutor

As you can see, then, there is a wide and varied range of workshops available. Remember that you can attend as many or as few as you’d like.

However many you choose to sign up for, be sure to join us for coffee and snacks between 11:45 and 12:30.

We look forward to bringing together the ELT community of Barcelona – see you there!

Places are strictly limited, so don’t delay and reserve your place today!
