These are some of the fundamental questions facing language teachers, ever more so today with online and hybrid learning. What tools are there to help teachers? The discussion focuses on both traditional concepts of motivation and more recent developments in technology to support learning.

Since the 1980s, much has been made of the summer slide – the loss of knowledge that takes place when students are out of school on their long vacation. What exactly does this mean? And is it really a thing? In 2021, educators will also face the knock-on effects of an academic year spent teaching remotely and supporting homeschooling – giving rise to yet another educational phenomenon: lost learning. How do we address all of these issues – to ensure that our students don’t get left behind?

In this session, the presenters look at these questions in the context of learning English, combining research findings with practical advice on making your teaching as impactful as possible as the new academic year begins.
