Essential English - Community of Practice Event

Essential English is new for everyone in 2020. We have all been busy creating rigorous and engaging programs for our students and guiding them through a period of extraordinary change and disruption. Now we're ready to take some time out for us. Our community of practice event is an opportunity for us to share some of the exciting work we've been doing and share samples of student work.
If you are doing something that's interesting or effective, why not celebrate it? We are calling for volunteers to present a 7 minute Pecha Kucha presentation summarising a moment of triumph or challenge in your delivery of Essential English so far.

Presentation Guidelines

  • The topic is completely open; as long as it is interesting and about Essential English, go for it!
  • A Pecha Kucha is a PowerPoint presentation: 20 slides, 20 seconds (about 50 words) per slide
  • The style is typically narrative and rich in visual imagery
  • Present live or, if you're shy or want to use some digital gymnastics, prerecord your speech and play it for us.
