How to focus on personalisation (without getting personal)

Presenters: Vaughan Jones

In a career of over twenty years writing ELT coursebooks, my co-author and I have always strived to produce materials that motivate students, make language learning memorable and, above all, promote meaningful exchanges.

A particularly important thread running through all our materials is an emphasis on personalisation and the role it can play in classrooms full of 16-18 year-olds. 

In this webinar, I will take a fresh look at the whole area of personalisation and compare and contrast personalised activities with non-personalised activities.

A particularly important thread running through all our materials is an emphasis on personalisation and the role it can play in classrooms full of 16-18 year-olds. We have always been strong advocates of tasks and activities that tap into the students’ own life experience and give them the opportunity to speak or write about their own thoughts, feelings or emotions.

Are we right?

In this webinar, I will take a fresh look at the whole area of personalisation and compare and contrast personalised activities with non-personalised activities.

We will be using examples from Focus Second Edition secondary course from Pearson.
