Workshop title: Working with human forgetting rates to maximize learning
Workshop description: Language teaching is often a race against time: in the very little contact time available, teachers must secure the retention and automatization of a relatively wide range of vocabulary, structures and skills sets. To best tackle this challenge, MFL teachers must have at least a basic understanding of the key cognitive challenges that language teaching and learning pose to their students (Ellis, 2018). In the first (shorter) section of this workshop, the facilitator will provide a concise research-based account of how the human brain processes, retains and retrieves L2 vocabulary and grammar. In the second (longer) section, he will proceed to suggest effective ways to maximize teaching and learning time by (a) embedding ILRs (Implicit Learning Routines); (b) teaching high-surrender-value functional chunks and (c) ‘smart’ recycling.
