Adaptability 2.0 - What do we really need in the Business English classroom?
Join presenter Karin Heuert Galvao at this IATEFL Business English Special Interest Group (BESIG) webinar
OK, so you know you need to be adaptable. But do you really know what to do?
Seth Godin lists adaptability as number one in his "Encyclopedia of Real Skills," not Soft Skills, Real Skills - Real because they work. These skills are learnable, and we should invest time in understanding them. It's high time we take a peek outside ELT because the BE scenario is no longer in the books. It's coming towards us at 200 mph, and it has no time to waste.
In this webinar, we will delve into adaptability, discuss the pros, the cons, and the yes-pleases of an adaptable class, and challenge you on an 'adaptability quest': How adaptable is too adaptable for you?
