In a learning-centred classroom, adults with emergent literacy skills need to acquire a better understanding of the language learning process and their own needs/goals in order to become confident and self-directed learners. Adult ESL Literacy instructors have an important role in scaffolding a learning path that encourages learners' independence both inside and outside of the classroom.

In this webinar, participants explored practical ideas on integrating language learning activities that build self-awareness, such as needs assessment, self-evaluation, and learning logs, in an adult ESL Literacy context.

  • I love seeing how quickly participants network regardless of their varying locations or their differences in experiences or their uniqueness of work placements. A truly safe community to share ideas and knowledge.

  • Great to connect with other Literacy instructors. Too many ideas to list, but especially liked reflective materials on mood and attendance - unique and very helpful.

  • I learned a variety of ways to reach lower level students with regards to their needs, reflections, goals, and successes. The webinar gave me inspiration to take what was presented and adjust the various rubrics and activities for my own students' levels.
