The Last Lecture (well, workshop)

ER Program Design and Implementation

Extensive Reading World Congress, Toyo Gakuen, Tokyo
Friday August 4th, 15:30-18:00

At the beginning of next month I’ll be doing a pre-conference workshop at the Extensive Reading World Congress in Tokyo. This will be my last presentation on education.

The title is the same as the book I have been thinking about writing for the last few years. The content too. In a way, it’s the summary of the last ten years of my work as a teacher. I hope it comes together the way I would like it to. If it does it should be a pretty comprehensive introduction to all aspects of designing and running an extensive reading program at the institutional level.

It’s a workshop, so we’ll be doing work. I’m going to use the PDR (preparation, discussion, reaction) framework to structure the group discussions and will cover the following areas:

  1. Designing a Program
  2. Selling a Program
  3. Setting up a Program
  4. Running a Program
  5. Leaving a Program

If you come to the conference I hope you will consider spending a couple of hours with us on Friday. I can almost guarantee you will find it useful.

If you have any questions before the event feel free to post them in the comments below.

Ben, Looking forward to seeing you at your Friday workshop! Didn’t know you were writing a book. Now I’m envious.

We could always co-write. You with the perspective on no Moodle quizzes, me with the perspective of using them. Just a thought.

Hello Ben.
I attended to your class on that day. It really inspires me that I want to try PDR in my class. Can you tell me how can I get the copy of ERTU and PDR books? Since I didn’t get any of them on last Friday. T_T
Looking forward to hearing the info from you.
Thank you.
