Have you ever heard of scrum meetings?
23 May 2017

Scrum meetings are a daily, morning huddle in the office where everyone summarises their activities from the previous day and for the upcoming one, including any highlights.

The daily scrum should be standing and succinct -  no new ideas; no rambling; brisk and relevant. They are a great way to keep you team on track and, they can be an important tool for students, helping them develop their communication skills and benefit their perception of success.

Sheila Maclean has over 16 years of teaching experience as well as working for clients such as BMW and Renault F1, and is a scrum expert.

At the Business English Trainers' Conference next month, Sheila will explain how a scrum meeting is structured, how it works, and what kind of vocabulary is needed for it to be effective.

She will provide information on how to use a daily scrum to recycle language, provide feedback, support error correction, develop learner autonomy and increase accuracy and fluency in speech.

The Business English Trainers' Conference is ideal for academic managers and trainers who either specialise in or have some involvement in the world of business English.

As well as mastering scrum meetings, join Bob Dignen, director of York Associates, to learn about leading international projects that drive strategic change and innovation, and CertIBET business English Teacher trainer, Dominique Vouillemin on the importance of CertlBET.

Matthew Devere will explain the benefits of one to one work with students; you can learn how to deliver business English effectively online with Jack Prince; and Ian Badger will discuss the key points in language learning which need to be put on top of the priority list.

For improving performance of teachers dealing with a diverse learner audience or an unfamiliar topic, the sessions of Ben Butler and Jeremy Rogers are a must.

Finally, find out more about the effects of digital age on business English teaching and learning; how you can utilise them and tackle the arising issues.
