This webinar is suitable for both EAL and ELICOS practitioners. The webinar explores a range of easy to implement homework strategies to help English students to continue learning after class, to make greater use of the many learning opportunities available to students outside the classroom and to motivate them to take charge of their own learning. The PD also addresses EAL volume of learning and how well-structured out of class activities assist course developers to meet volume of learning requirements.
