ALA Webinar: ‘Plan a Project’ for jobseeking EAL/D learners


Presenter: Lidia Lipkiewicz
When: Wednesday 11th September @ 1pm AEST
Duration: 1 hr
Cost: Free ALA members | $50 non-members


‘Plan a project’ is a weekly, project-based program designed specifically for the EAL/D (ESOL) learner who is also a job seeker. In a nutshell, the program develops language, literacy and numeracy skills as well as employability skills, and creates a culture and a mindset of ‘hey I can get a job if I want one!

Workshop attendees will come away with lots of practical hands-on ideas including rough lesson plans and rough course outlines. They will also be provided with a list of tried and tested EAL/D (ESL) resources that have been developed for the ESOL learner/job seeker.

Through a workshop format, including a powerpoint presentation and an interactive component, participants will gain a real sense of what happens in one of Lidia’s classes.
