21st Century Skills - A Workshop for Teachers

How can we promote critical thinking in the classroom? How can we guide our students in finding their own voice? And how can poetry and theatre help us train 21st century skills?

If you are a school teacher, headmaster or head of department and if these questions keep you busy, our hands-on workshop may be the right choice for you. In this 2-day teacher-training seminar, we'll be looking at how we can step away from being the one in charge of interaction in the classroom and act as facilitator or coach. Together, we'll explore how the award-winning 2CG® multi-method teaching approach can help you encourage your students to develop 21st century skills, such as effective communication skills, empathy and reflective skills, in the framework of your English language class.
