Click here to sign up and enjoy the work of renowned ESOL guru – Philida Schellekens – talking about Creating effective learning activities in the multi-level classroom, on Thursday 26th September at  pm EST,/7pm GMT.

Please note – this is an IATEFL and NATECLA MEMBERS ONLY webinar

In Philida’s session, she will look at the characteristics and contexts that give rise to multi-level language groups and the opportunities and challenges that teachers face.  Philida will look at activities that work well and review the advantages and disadvantages of strategies to meet students’ individual needs, aka differentiation. This approach has become very popular and yet is not without its critics.  She will also explore what research has to say about differentiation and apply John Hattie’s meta-analysis on the most effective strategies to multi-level teaching.
