Eliciting is a range of techniques which can be used by teachers to get information from learners. We can elicit pretty much anything in the classroom. In this workshop, Rachel will demonstrate how teachers can elicit vocabulary items, ideas and much more from their learners. 

By demonstrating eliciting techniques and providing practical ideas, Rachel is going to highlight how eliciting will keep your learners engaged and motivated. She also aims to demonstrate how the use of elicitation techniques will encourage a learner-centred classroom environment.

Rachel will begin by explaining what eliciting is and will discuss when it can be used in lessons.

She will then look at how we can elicit information from pictures, mime and more. She will also look at how eliciting techniques can be used in grammar lessons.

Finally, Rachel will discuss some fun activities that you can incorporate into your lessons.

Preparing for the Workshop

Our Masterclass workshops are typically delivered in 90 mins.

At Gallery Teachers, we endorse the philosophy of building on your previous knowledge and experience as opposed to just imparting knowledge on you. 

Therefore, in order to prepare you for the webinar and help you activate what you already know about the topic, we will suggest two to four reflective questions for you to consider before you join the event.

You will also be given the opportunity to post your reflections, along with any questions you may already have at the pre-watching stage, to the discussion forum. 

The reflective questions, as well as ideas and shared experiences posted to the forum by attendees, will be used in the real-time Q&A session in order to generate an engaging and meaningful discussion, involving the presenter and teachers from around the world. 

After the event, the forum discussion will take on a life of its own and teachers will be encouraged to continue posting their experiences, reflections and questions related to the topic of the webinar. So, if you feel strongly about the topic, we will make it possible for you to take the discussion beyond the scheduled workshop and continue sharing your ideas with like-minded teachers and teacher trainers from other countries

As we are all teachers, I feel some of the topics that Rachel brought up were familiar to most of us, and maybe we use some of these techniques without thinking about that. They have just become part of our teaching personality, so it’s been good to press the Pause button and have a thought on what we do and why we do it, and then how we can improve.


Great tool

I enjoyed the session, especially discussion section. Participants and panellist asked interesting questions and provided great answers with examples. It was somehow inspiring! Didn’t get where is the survey but wrote my review~ Also it was well organized!
