Chris Roland is a teacher trainer based at ELI, a language school in Seville, Spain. He is known for his lively and highly practical sessions on the international conference circuit.

With twenty years' experience in the classroom, he has taught in both the private academy sector and mainstream education system in Spain as well as holding posts with the British Council in Damascus and Barcelona.

He works with teachers across a wide range of contexts: at inhouse level, as tutor on the Trinity Certificate and Diploma courses and in conjunction with local education authorities. He still teaches regular weekly classes to young learners, teens and adults and his talks are rich in examples of student work as well as anecdotes from his lessons.
His ELTon nominated methodology book: Understanding Teenagers in the ELT Classroom, has recently been published by Pavilion. He has also contributed numerous articles to English Teaching Professional magazine over the last decade.

Timetable May 2, 2020
  • 09.45 – 10.00 Participant registration
  • 10.00 – 11.30 Session 1: Teaching Low-level Teens
  • This session will help those teachers faced with students who do not seem to know anything. It can be very hard to get them to speak when they do not have the words they need to say what they want. It can be even harder to get them to listen to audios or to their teacher's explanations when they do not understand. Filling in gapped sentences with the correct word is also much more complicated when a student does not actually understand the sentence. We might not be able to solve all these problems definitively but we shall provide you with some simple, highly practicable moves to make things go better.
  • 11.30 – 11.45 Break
  • 11.45 – 13.15 Session 2: Beyond Good or Bad: Advanced Techniques for Teaching Teens
    As teachers, when things are going well in class we are generally happy. The moment events start to run counter to our expectations then we stop being happy and start to feel a strain upon our psyches and emotions. What about if we can go further than simply seeing good behavior and bad behavior? In this session we shall expand our perspectives on both the teacher and student condition and classroom dynamics between the two.
  • 13.15 – 14.30 Lunch time
  • 14.30 – 15.45 Session 3: Putting the Adult Back into the Class
    Sometimes, our adult learners get lost amongst our good intentions and materials, overwhelmed with handouts and worksheets that supplant their own voices. Whatever their level of language, each adult learner will have opinions, preferences, a sense of humour, previous learning experience and life experience that they want to put into English. In this session we shall look at how to tap into all of these to increase engagement and learning.
  • 15.45 – 16.00 Break
  • 16.00 – 17.15 Session 4: How to Give a Really Good one-to-one Lesson
    A good one-to-one lesson depends to a certain degree on a level of symbiosis between student and teacher. There is, therefore, nothing you can do that will completely guarantee success but there are definitely moves you can make to stack the odds in your favour. In this session I shall tell you about my most productive one-to-one lessons over the last twenty years, drawing out the deciding factors and principles which you can use yourself. I shall also talk about some one-to-one lessons that did not work, identifying the mistakes I made so that you can avoid those yourself. The focus will be on face to face general English, business English, English for specific purposes and exam preparation but the principles identified will be applicable to online teaching as well.
  • 17.15 – 18.00 Q & A Session
    We believe that audience interaction with the presenter is extremely valuable, so as well as there being time in each session for questions specifically related to that session, here we are offering a chance to field any questions that occur to you over the course of the day or questions related to areas of teaching not so far touched upon.
