Banner IV Moot V3




This year, our international Moot aims to allow teachers and researchers of foreign languages and second languages to socialize challenges, perspectives, and significant actions they experience every day in their different educative contexts. We invite professors, teachers, and students to share with us their knowledge, to show the world those actions that are lowering inequalities inside urban and rural contexts, and to keep promoting education as a way to transform students’ lives.

Lecture “The Road Ahead: maps and end points for EFL performance”
The ELT classroom experience leads to opportunities beyond the classroom, but how do we connect curriculum with the students' future goals? We will examine curriculum mapping guidelines; identify authentic tasks which relate to the world beyond the classroom; suggest assessment tools; and explore how the ELT classroom can move beyond the classroom and into the job workplace.
