Speaking and writing and marking — Oh, my! (Easing the burden of exam prep.)

  • Session B

Presenter(s): Sharon Acton

Helping students prepare for the WRITING and SPEAKING sections of exams is labour and time intensive! Often students come to us with very short deadlines. How can teachers skill up students quickly and create opportunities for feedback while at the same time reducing their workload? You will walk away from this workshop with ideas on how to

  • improve speaking + writing skills
  • manage student work submissions and
  • reduce your marking load without compromising learning quality

This workshop will use TOEFL as an example, but most of the teaching and management tips are also pertinent to preparation for IELTS, Cambridge exams, and any course which involves speaking and writing.  A swapping of ideas with other participants will follow.
