What are global skills and why is it essential that our students develop them? Why can we say that English language teaching provides opportunities to teach global skills? How easy is it to integrate them into your lessons? How can they be assessed in the classroom? This webinar will answer all these questions, as well as providing practical suggestions for simple activities that you can use. We’ll also help you to identify global skills activities that are already present in your coursebook.
N.B. This webinar is designed for teachers of English in Italy's lower secondary schools (1° grado). If you are interested in the topic but teach in upper secondary, please join us on 24 November: register at https://events.oup.com/oxford-university-press/Global-Skills-2-grado
