About the Workshop:

Education in the 21st Century is not about passing on content knowledge, but in Andreas Schleicher's words, it is about “ways of thinking which involve creative and critical approaches to problem solving and decision making… also about ways of working, including communication and collaboration” (Schleicher, 2011). This workshop will help the participants to find out the key features of these 21st Century Core Skills, why these skills are important in their personal and work life, and how to incorporate them into their teaching practice in order to create a more effective learning experience for their learners.

Facilitator(s) :

Winnie Pang has 20 years' experience in English language teaching, having worked with learners of all ages and levels of proficiency. Since completing an MEd in 2005 and the DELTA in 2006, she has continued to expand her teaching repertoire by finishing an IH teacher trainer certificate and obtaining the Core Skills Trainer validation from British Council UK. Winnie has become specialised in course design, material writing and teacher development.

Winnie is currently working as a Creative Educator of British Council Hong Kong, specialising in the Core Skill of Creativity and Imagination. She firmly believes in self-reflection, assessment for and assessment as learning, as well as the teaching strategy of ‘thinking out loud'. 

Intended Learning Outcomes :

 On completion of this workshop, the participants would be able to: 

1. describe some of the key features of the three core skills;  

2. identify some core skills practices through a hands-on group task; and 

3. evaluate which of the core skills practices are suitable for their own classroom teaching through a think-pair-share feedback discussion.
