Welcome to TEA

TEA Summer School, 21-25 August 2017

E-mail Print

Our Summer School in 2017 will take place in Raach, Niederösterreich at the Seminarzentrum, 2640 Raach am Hochgebirge. http://www.szr.at/index.shtml We will have the following trainers:

Jamie Keddie is a teacher trainer, writer and presenter who has shared his ideas with teachers /educators all over the world. His areas of interest include image, video, video camera & storytelling in the classroom. He founded lessonstream.org, and is the author of ‘Images’ (OUP 2009), ‘Bringing online video into the classroom’ (OUP 2014) and ‘Videotelling’ (2016). Jamie is an associate trainer at Norwich Institute for Language Education.  His workshops will be about:

The Teacher as Storyteller. Teacher-led storytelling is often associated with young learners. But we are considering a classroom art which is far too versatile and valuable to be connected with one group alone. In this series of workshops, I would like share tasks/techniques that allow us to turn a short story into a whole-class discussion with learning opportunities along the way. Some stories are based on video narratives – often referred to as 'Videotelling'.

Peter Dyer has worked in Australia as a professional actor and has appears in many TV series and films and done radio and voice work. He is a graduate secondary teacher in Drama and Media Arts and has worked for Pilgrims in Canterburg for over 20 years as a teacher trainer in drama methodology and improvisation in the language classroom.

Creative Teaching. Participants do some group coordination activities to build cohesion & confidence. Then there will be simple improvisation activities to encourage our students to want to speak & these can be adapted for writing too. We will develop our listening/communication skills & free our creative/imaginative forces to help students too.

Save the date: 18 February 2016

Place: Webster University, Praterstrasse 23, 1020 Vienna

Time: 18.00-20.00

Most teachers have a pretty good repertoire of ways of presenting and practising grammar. But new ideas are always welcome! This workshop will be exploring a variety of classroom techniques and activities, that relate to grammar teaching, and that will probably be new to you. Some new ways of using grammar boxes, explaining rules, making more of grammar gap-fills, setting up communicative practice, and more.

Philip Kerr is a well-known teacher trainer, lecturer and materials writer with over 30 years of experience in English language teaching.
