Pearson English Spring Days

Just as spring is a new beginning, we hope to bring fresh ideas to help teachers keep learning and keep teaching. 

We invite you to join us for our Pearson English Spring Days online learning event. Taking place from 4th – 15th May, 2020, you’ll be able to learn from over 40 webinar sessions from more than 20 leading experts in ELT, including plenaries from Jeremy Harmer and Dr. Ken Beatty

They’ll offer professional development advice and lots of practical classroom tips. You’ll come away with lots of new ideas for teaching, assessment and planning your classes – for adults, teens and young learners. 

How does it work? 

Each session will last up to 60 minutes and will take place live on our webinar platform (selected sessions will also be streamed live on Facebook). 

Each session is repeated twice for you to choose the best time for your convenience and there is a wide range of topics to suit your own teaching context. These include: 

  • Teaching primary learners
  • Teaching secondary learners and exams 
  • Teaching adult learners 
  • Pearson assessment 

During the sessions, you will be able to ask questions and interact with other attendees while learning about interesting and new topics. You can also follow along and join the conversation on Twitter, using the hashtag #PearsonSpringDays. 

And to make things even better, all attendees will get a certificate and a virtual goodie bag!
