Language Classroom Content & Pedagogy Reflections and Ideas on Teaching English Oral Presentation Courses more

Sat, Nov 13, 14:05-14:30 Asia/Tokyo

This talk reflects on teaching English oral presentation courses at a Japanese university over five years. A focus will be given to how online components were integrated into the course and implementing a comprehensive presenter feedback system that included multiple teacher-, peer-, and self-evaluations, along with reflection discussions. This experience, combined with post-course questionnaire results, will then be used to consider ideas on how presentations can be more effectively addressed in future face-to-face, online, and blended teaching contexts.
