From Tradition to Innovation

Dana Poplepovik from Buenos Aires, the winner of the BESIG facilitators Scholarship Award, gave an inspiring talk this afternoon. In her short 30 min presentation she introduced us to two activities for business English students borrowed from well-known management techniques which could be used to round off a course book unit to give students an opportunity for experimental learning and develop their interpersonal skills together with the language studied. The last 10 mins passed very quickly as the audience were motivated to volunteer their own suggestions for similar activities  which we all could apply to our own classes. All-in-all a very enjoyable session.
