Wroclaw University of Science and Technology, Lecturer
- 10:00-11:00 - Day 2
Foreign language learning and teaching have been evolving since they became formal disciplines, and 2020 has forced us to take a huge step in this wild evolutionary process. Perhaps for the best, both students and teachers have been forced out of their comfort zones, and sent kicking and screaming into their living rooms. As this tumultuous year draws to an end, we’ll take a look at how the roles of student and teacher have evolved over the years, and attempt to answer one big question: What’s next?
How have the teachers' and the students' roles evolved and what is next?
John moved to Poland in 2006 from San Diego, California, and has made Wroclaw his home over the past 10+ years. For the first part of his teaching career, John worked in language schools, teaching mainly younger learners and teenagers, and eventually branched out into other areas of EFL instruction, including exam English, business English, and teacher training. In 2012 John completed an MA in Applied Linguistics with a focus on teaching English as a foreign language. After that, in order to complement his theoretical knowledge of language acquisition, he undertook the Cambridge Delta in 2015. Currently John works as a teacher trainer and university lecturer, which provides plenty of opportunities to create and search for new ideas that help his teachers and students achieve their goals in the classroom.
