About the episode
The concept of peer learning is gaining traction and is being talked about more and more in a variety of contexts and disciplines, from academia to corporate training and of course, language learning.
Join us for an enlightening chat as Michael Shannon, Angers-based Trainer and Peer-Learning Facilitator, offers a how-to on creating semi-independent, peer-learning partnerships to strengthen the work they’ve started with you.
We’ll explore the benefits and set-up of this collaborative methodology that fosters learner independence, boosts confidence, and helps instill mutual motivation and accountability on your learners’ language journey.
Michael talks us through his own experience and offers tips on useful tools like Padlet to help you get started with your learners.
Michael Shannon, a former Business English trainer for Business Class, currently teaches English and leads development projects at the Learning Centre at ISTOM Agro-development School in Angers.
