'Teaching and using visual communication in the language classroom' presented by Sherri Williams

An IATEFL webinar presented by Sherri Williams

It's obvious that we live in a visual culture, but how much are you using visual communication to facilitate learning in your language classroom? And are you teaching your students to communicate visually to better prepare them for working in an international context? Join communications expert Sherri Williams of Global Confidence as we explore ways to make language learning more visual, using techniques such as graphic recording, visual brainstorming, flipchart drawing, sketch journaling, gesturing, and more. Sherri will also introduce her original concept of Visual Springboarding, which involves using specially-designed pictorial worksheets for preparing for spoken presentations or conversations.

There are many practical ways to draw out language from your students and help them be prepared to communicate effectively in our global world. Join us to get inspired, and take away resources and tools you can use in your classroom starting right away! 

Sherri Williams has been leading Business English training in Berlin, Germany for over 7 years through her company Global Confidence, with an emphasis on practical, task-based teaching for upper intermediate and advanced English speakers. She also served as ELTABB Chair for 3 years and regularly presents at BESIG, IATEFL Poland BESIG, and other conferences and teaching associations. Her most recent project, Visual Springboarding, draws on her art & design background in a new training tool that provides a highly effective, creative and enjoyable foundation for improving speaking skills across a variety of industries and disciplines.
