タイトル/概要 Title, abstract "Tools for Active Learning in the EFL Classroom"

Are you a teacher looking for ways to brush up your teaching skills, motivate your students more, and recharge your batteries with like-minded colleagues? If so, then this workshop on Active Learning (AL) is for you.
Bonwell and Eison (1991) have defined AL as “anything that involves students in doing things and thinking about the things they are doing” (p. 2). How specifically teachers create AL opportunities in their classes, though, needs to be understood in greater detail, as it has been shown that teachers frequently struggle to cohesively integrate their methodologies, content, and goals within an AL approach to teaching and learning (Nishikawa, 2015).
In the first part of our workshop, we will look at what AL is, why it is important, and how to add several new tools to our teaching toolbox to help our students to learn more actively. Specifically, we will practice ways to involve our students more in AL processes that span the four skills of reading, writing, listening, and speaking. In addition, we will visit ways that students can become more active through activating their agency, curiosity, critical thinking, dialogue, and bodies to develop more interactive competence.
In the second part of our workshop, we will continue to explore AL through reflecting on the results of a mixed methods research project that was conducted by the presenter in which university students express their preferences for more AL in their classes, particularly in lectures. Students overwhelmingly reported their desire to have more active classes rather than just having conventional teacher-centered 90-minute lectures. We will then consider more practical ways for teachers to involve their students more actively even within traditional contexts such as lectures.
