    The naked teacher – working without pre-planned materials
    Time: 4.30pm-6.00pm (BST) Cost: £20 This interactive webinar explores resourceless teaching in a TELLs context. Aside from taking up so much planning time, pre-prepared materials and resources can often have the effect of closing down or narrowing learners’ participation and agency in how and what they learn. How can a more ‘naked’ approach address some of these challenges? The webinar will also look at the influential ‘Dogme’ approach – borrowed from cinema, and applied to language teaching.
