Mind Full or Mindful?

posted 5 Sep 2018, 21:05 by Asociación Profesores Inglés Rosario   [ updated 24 Sep 2018, 21:45 ]

 APRIR takes pleasure in inviting you to this presentation:



What do we do with students that are emotionally overwhelmed? 

When we think about learning, traditionally the emphasis has been laid on contents and cognition and the role of emotions has been overlooked.

Today we know emotions need to be observed and acknowledged to make learning more effective and rewarding. Clearly, it´s high time we helped our students manage stress, reduce anxiety and focus their attention.

In this workshop, we will address the need for integrating different disciplines such as mindfulness, neurosciences and positive education in our daily teaching, not only to enhance the learning process but also to create well-being in our classrooms.


When? Saturday September 29th - 9.30 to 12

Where? St Patrick's, Salta 2643



APRIR members: free of charge 

Students,  St Patrick's staff and members of FAAPI affiliated TAs: $150

The challenge of teaching adults

posted 14 Aug 2018, 22:23 by Asociación Profesores Inglés Rosario   [ updated 29 Aug 2018, 12:03 by Mariel Amez ]

 APRIR takes pleasure in inviting you to this presentation:




Teaching adults is a continuous challenge and a field we are not trained at when studying to become teachers. What do adult learners need? How can we help them meet their objectives? How can we help them use their own tools to learn English? Teaching adults is a continuous challenge but it can also be a rewarding and enriching experience for both teacher and student.

In this give-and-take workshop, we will be discussing some assumptions and ideas - even preconceptions- we may have about this area of teaching and then picturing some real-life scenarios to exchange ideas, experiences, queries, resources and strategies to grow together personally and professionally. We want you to feel reassured you have what it takes to teach adult students!

When? Saturday September 8th - 9 to 12

APRIR takes pleasure in inviting you to this presentation:





Smartphones have become the most ubiquitous electronic devices. For us English teachers, that means we need to either ban  them in our classes, or come to terms with them and incorporate their use into our routine. Ignoring their ubiquity does not seem to help. So, why not engage our students in using those power-packed, hand-held computers to improve their skills in English?

In this workshop we are going to analyse the pros and cons of incorporating the use of smartphones in the classroom, discuss different functionalities and applications that might be useful for language teaching and learning and look at some engaging activities that students can carry out using mobiles.
