Back to the future: planning for success

Presenter(s): Hugh Dellar

In this webinar, Hugh looks at the growing trend towards outcome-oriented teaching and how the communicative goals laid out in the Global Scale of English can help provide a framework for courses. We look at the idea of backwards planning and see some examples of how starting with your final destination in mind helps you map out the grammar, vocabulary and functional language that will be of most use to students as they make their way forward.
