Given the current reality, the need for new approaches for teaching – especially in online/blended learning environments – is critical. More than ever before, schools around the world are shifting their focus and prioritizing the practice of social and emotional learning. The call for compassion has never been greater.
The Verbalists Education & Language Network has partnered with the world’s leading teacher training experts to deliver a series of free webinars and workshops which will help you build easily and effortlessly emotional learning into virtual, blended, or in-person environments.
Last week’s webinar with iteach and Raff Cutolo was a great success! Many of our teacher members and followers, who could not attend that webinar, asked us to repeat it. We are pleased to announce that we have agreed with iteach to deliver “Crossing the Subject Border” workshop free of charge once more and in the two web meeting times:

Crossing the Subject Border – How to create emotionally charged events in your lessons
📆 Wednesday, February 24, 2021
There are two web meeting times available:
at 17:00 GMT (Time in London, UK)
at 23:55 GMT (Time in London, UK)
Why is it that some things we teach stick in our students’ minds and others don’t? It is not all about the students but also about our capability as teachers to create emotionally charged events in our lessons.
In this session we will look at how to exploit the possibilities offered by the EFL lesson to cross the linguistic borders in order to provide a 360-degree learning experience that caters for a variety of learning styles by targeting different task values.
iteach sessions are delivered by Raff Cutolo, an expert teacher trainer and Creative Learning Experience Designer.
Raff has 15 years’ teaching experience in primary, secondary and tertiary education. He holds a PhD in English Studies and has published extensively in the fields of English Language, Literature and Culture.
