Connect, Grow, Thrive

Lausanne: 12 October -- WORKSHOP -- Maximising Student Talk Time

Maximising Student Talk Time concerns not only quantity, but also quality with regard to its usefulness and productiveness. In this practical session, presenter and teacher-trainer Alex Warren will show us what balance of STT vs TTT we should be aiming for, what constitutes "quality STT" and how we can achieve it.

This workshop will be held at UNIL (University of Lausanne). More details to be posted soon.
