I'd be grateful if you could pass on to your teachers and other contacts information about this Saturday's live streamed sessions from theBritish Council Spain annual teachers' conference, 2015. This year's theme is 'Learning to Learn', and we're lucky enough to haveGail Ellis giving the opening plenary. As you probably know, Gail is one of the leading authorities on this area, and has a new book on the topic published this year. We also have sessions on Early Years, Exams, and encouraging class introverts, plus a closing show with a difference: an action-packed science show that connects English with STEM* learning for anyone interested in Bilingualism, CLIL, or with the curiosity to see a rocket-powered deckchair or a presenter set their own hair alight.
The schedule for the streaming is as follows (all Spanish times: UK +1 hour):
10.00-10.10 Welcome (Andy Mackay, Country Director Spain)
10.10-11.00 Teaching Our Learners How to Learn (Gail Ellis)
