Accountability and resilience – values that develop learning with Gail Ellis and Nayr Ibrahim
Taking a values-based approach enables each child to become an effective learner by engaging in activities that support their learning. This workshop will demonstrate how a learning-to-learn approach can develop accountability - taking responsibility for and talking about learning; and resilience – assessing performance to become aware of strengths and weaknesses in order to identify next steps.

The view of the child in an ELT context with Gail Ellis and Nayr Ibrahim
The default position of most training is focused on the adult. As many teachers are required to teach children, their view of the learner needs to expand. This talk will present data which reveals that teachers have rarely developed a philosophy of the child, and will present techniques to help them consider children as active participants in their own learning.

How to cultivate a growth mindset in YL EFL classrooms with Sophie Handy
At British Council Paris, we support our students in achieving their learning goals via an Assessment for Learning culture. Carol Dweck’s Growth Mindset is a natural extension of this, developing pupils’ self-awareness of their learning. By studying what our teachers do, I've discovered, and will share, how to cultivate this approach despite the culture of summative assessment in the French context.
