Creating Communities of Learners in Blended and Online Environments

The workshop is about facing up to the challenge of creating communities of learners in  blended and online courses. From 
the socioconstructivist approach, Palloff and Pratt (2005,  2007) explain the underlying principles of how collaborative 
learning can be nurtured online. 

Their principles strengthen the classic task cycle put forward by Willis and Willis (1996). With these tools, we teachers are
able to design courses fostering collaborative and cooperative  taskwork (per García Galván 2011-2013). 
In this workshop we will first explain the principles, then move on to a hands-on task where  small groups of participants 
will make some sample tasks. At the end the teachers will share  their outcomes that exemplify applications of learning 
communities for their own contexts,  whether blended or online. 

Alma Daniela Otero and Nevin Siders hold master's degrees in education and have been  at the Universidad Pedagógica 
Nacional for more than ten years as teachers of the English  language, as well as in undergraduate and postgraduate 
programs. They have created  materials for several foreign and second language projects, including the UPN's current 
Postgraduate Degree Program for Teaching English as a Foreign Language (EEAILE).  Nevin Siders is the chair of the B.A. in 

Adult Education. 

5:00 - 6:20 second presentation 

Motivation: Creating a positive Learning Environment

Motivation is one of those thoughts just like justice or fairness that in principle we all know they are favourable for our 
teaching, but it's not quite so clear how to achieve it. Motivation is defined as the internal drive that prompts someone to 
carry out an activity towards an end. The role of motivation in the teaching-learning process is crucial to student success. 
Lack of motivation is perhaps the biggest barrier faced by teachers all over the world. Experts in the fields suggest that 
activities that fall within the framework of Humanistic View of Motivation could help teachers achieve this goal.

6:40 - 8:00 Third presentation 

The Video Game Model for Brain-Based Learning

Scientists have amazing tools to look into the brains of living people. For example, they now know why children and teens 
find video games so addictive: the games cause a rush of the  neurotransmitter dopamine.  Neurologist and classroom teacher Judy Willis believes we can increase students' dopamine levels in our classes to stimulate our students' learning. 

Dr. Willis developed the Video Game MODEL, which is a set of classroom strategies (that don't include video games).  In 
this presentation, you will learn how the Video Game MODEL works, so you can incorporate it in your classes. 
Joep van der Werff has worked in ELT for the last 20 years: as a teacher, teacher trainer, coordinator mostly at Interlingua, 
and as an author for Richmond Publishing. He is currently  an editor at Richmond, where he works on print and digital
