17:30 - 19:00 Future-proofing Business English (1730-1900)
How will we be teaching Business English in one, three, or even five years from now? Which approaches, methods and resources will we, and our learners, still be using? What will we be doing differently, and what will we not be doing at all? And how will they, and we, have adapted in the meantime?
Following these thoughts, there are key questions we should be asking ourselves when considering the future of Business English learning and teaching, and how to future-proof the services and products we offer.
This interactive workshop will address such questions and dig deeper to discuss and debate key issues, as well as sharing insights from recent research and our own strategy at York Associates.
19:30 - 21:00 Using authentic case studies
This session will look at the benefits of using authentic case studies in your training and explain how you can source ideas and content to create your own. We’ll look at different types from quick and simple ideas to more complex and comprehensive cases, with content drawn from individuals as well as corporate messaging and the media.
