3729

Looking for creative ways to enhance your online classes? We’ve got you covered. Throughout February, we’re offering a series of free webinars on how to plan and deliver interactive and engaging lessons using the ESAP framework

ESAP, which stands for Engage, Study, Activate and Practice, provides an easy to follow framework for teaching online. It clearly outlines lesson stages and suggests activities and routines you can implement into all your lessons to keep students engaged and motivated while learning English. 

It focuses on using digital tools and incorporates things like providing personalized feedback via chat, pairing students in breakout rooms, or keeping up with student performance in real-time online. 

The webinars are aimed at secondary and adult-level teachers. And with each one, you’ll get clear ideas for how to apply ESAP into practicefollowing examples from popular courses, digital platforms and tools from Pearson. You’ll also receive support from world-class teacher trainers on how to deliver engaging and interactive lessons remotely.
