Mediation - what is it and how do we teach it?
Presented by Steve Tulk
Expect to hear the word ‘mediation’ a lot in the near future, as mediation descriptors are now in the CEFR. As teachers, we need to know what it is, why it matters and how we can teach it. But what if you already teach the skills needed without knowing it? By the end of this talk you should have a clear idea of what mediation is and how it reflects real-life communication. With examples from Macmillan’s new General English course, Language Hub, we will look at a range of activities – some familiar, some new – that you can use to develop the mediation skills of your own students.
