Workshop for Returning Instructors

TOPIC: Input-Output Sequence Matters: Strategies that Keep Students Engaged and Motivated

How do you implement the three modes of communication (interpretative, interpersonal and presentational) in class?  Do you allow students to have space and time in class for modeling structures, vocabulary or review previous materials?  Do you design your activities with the National Standards in mind?  Do you avoid the use of interpretative communication because it affects the class tempo?  Do you apply a PDP sequence successfully?  This session will discuss different approaches to Input-Output sequences that work with interpretative communication and that will lead to interpersonal and/or presentational communications.  These strategies will keep your students engaged and motivated while working with interpretative communication.  Attendees will prepare and present an input-output sequence of activities using video, audio or readings.  

All attendees are required to bring a sample of interpretative communication (listening/reading).

PRESENTER: Dr. Celines Villalba Rosado, Coordinator, Department of Spanish & Portuguese
DATE: THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 2012 
TIME: 9:00-12:00 NOON
