How to Develop Original Thinking in Student Communication


What do today’s English learners need to be ready for the future? Strong critical thinking, unlocked creativity, clear communication skills, a solid understanding of social-emotional learning, and the ability to speak with their own voice. In this session, Dr. Hieu will discuss what educators can do to equip students with these vital skills. We’ll look at how English language teaching today has evolved, and most importantly we’ll discuss how we can transform the way we teach as we look to the future.
