    Abstract
       

    Cambridge Assessment English exams are based on communication and real-life tasks. But what does it mean to communicate effectively nowadays? And most importantly, how can we teach our students to communicate better? In this workshop we will define what 2020 communication is, what it encompasses, and how we can practise it in class. In doing so we will consider verbal and non-verbal communication, speaking and writing, and the roles of all actors involved in the act of communicating. We will also look at aspects of good communication that will help your students succeed in sample tasks from the Cambridge Assessment English qualifications. You will participate in activities that you will be able to adapt for your classes, be they with primary, secondary, or adult students.

    Abstract
       

    What gets you out of bed in the morning? Are you full of energy and ready to face the new term? How do we ensure that we, as teachers, have the motivation to motivate others? Low motivation links to low productivity both in the classroom and beyond for students and teachers alike. Looking at proven techniques and the psychology behind them, find out how to remove blocks to your productivity and start the new term with a bounce in your step.
