Task-Based Language Teaching (TBLT) promotes communicative competence, encourages student engagement, and focuses on the use of authentic and meaningful language.
For this workshop, we have a special presenter, Yoshie Nishikawa, a lecturer in Japanese at Victoria University of Wellington. She has been teaching Japanese language for 20 years. Since learning about TBLT 7 years ago, she has been gradually integrating TBLT in her teaching and found it not only beneficial to students but also an enjoyable experience for herself. She is currently undertaking PhD research on TBLT implementation in her beginner-level Japanese course.
This online workshop aims to help participants enhance their Japanese course by exploring the integration of the TBLT approach into their teaching. Participants will engage in the provided task and collaboratively create tasks related to the theme of 'Health.' For those who are new to TBLT, a short video will be shared in advance for them to watch before joining the workshop.
