Session 2. 11:15am. Room 2

Have you been teaching the same topics for years, or even decades? Have you been using the same sets of resources? Do you feel your enthusiasm and passion waning? You might be experiencing content fatigue. 

In this workshop we will examine the traditional tropes and topics covered in Italian classrooms, and consider new approaches and content you can utilise in your lessons to revive yourself and reinspire your students. You will come away with sets of ready-prepared lesson-threads to get you started on your journey.
