Listening skills development is often an area of challenge for teachers and anxiety provoking for students. Based on a Collaborative Extended Practitioner Inquiry conducted in the framework of the Teaching Excellence Program, this workshop will provide research-based approaches and tools to make metacognition visible for the improvement of students’ listening abilities.
