Date:  July 29, August 5 & 12, 2017
Venue:  Ateneo de Manila University
Recent educational reforms in the country have given educators a chance to change classroom practices that may no longer be relevant and appropriate in responding to the challenges of the 21st century learning milieu. What then do these academic reforms demand from our teachers and learners? How do these developments change the way we think and do things inside and outside the classroom? One of the changes that teachers need to prepare for is the teaching of a new General Education course called Purposive Communication in English. What is this course about? What does it entail? How does it help prepare learners meet the demands of both local and global communities? The topics, activities and tasks in this workshop are designed to help teachers prepare learners to communicate effectively in various multicultural contexts using multimodal materials.
