 February Webinar to be led by 

                          Ms. Rachel Paling 

On Sunday 12th February 2023 at 10:30 on Zoom TESOL Macedonia-Thrace, Northern Greece welcomes Ms Rachel Paling who will be discussing a topic that cannot fail to engage us all. 

Let's get to know our speaker

Rachel founded Efficient Language Coaching in 2008. She has a BA Honours in Law/Spanish, Masters in Human Rights/Democratization (EMA) and ia a qualified UK Lawyer since 2003. She combined teaching, business English and legal knowledge to coach top executives across Europe and has created the new method and approach called Neurolanguage Coaching®, training nearly 1200 language teachers worldwide certifying them with her course, one of the only language coaching certification courses in the world accredited by International Coach Federation USA. She is an ICF PCC Coach and has an MA in Applied Neuroscience and a Master in Neuroeducation and Neuropsychology.

About the session

When educators use metacognition, neuroscience and emotional intelligence in their teaching processes, they can greatly impact the way that learners learn. But, the great question is “what is metacognition/neuroscience and how we can implement these in practical terms?” In this talk, we will explore the different perspectives and more importantly, how to harness this knowledge to change mindset, transform learning, provoke leaner autonomy, and arouse curiosity. 21st century learning becomes more impregnated with neuroscientific research, but the real question is how to “live” the research in our everyday teaching and learning.

The link to the event will be emailed to registered members on the Friday prior to the event.
