Maximize your experience in a culturally rich city by engaging in both academic and cultural activities!

Join us for engaging workshops where we study the boundless realms of experiential learning! Beyond the boundaries of textbooks, our workshop aims to offer participants an unconventional journey of discovery. From exploring the power of language through written expression practices to embracing the richness of bilingualism, we will delve into the myriad benefits of mastering a second language. Moreover, we will emphasize the significance of teaching rhetorical appeals in fostering effective communication skills, encouraging attendees to improve their abilities. This workshop is not just about sharing knowledge, but also about fostering critical thinking and interaction, transforming learning into an immersive experience.

Learning Outside Classroom: Learning Outside Classroom is a method of learning that positions students in a context that motivates them to learn. It can benefit students to be successful in a variety of settings including activities within a school’s or college’s own buildings, participation in drama productions, concerts and other special events; involvement in clubs, musical groups and sporting activities held during break times and before or after the school day; educational visits organised within the school day; and residential visits that take place during the school week, a weekend or holiday. In this context, this learning method enriches the curriculum and can improve educational attainment.

Stream of Conscious in Writing Practices: Stream of consciousness is a narrative device that at-tempts to give the written equivalent of the character’s thought processes, either in a loose interior monologue or in connection to his or her actions. Stream of consciousness writing is usually regarded as a special form of interior monologue and is characterized by associative leaps in thought and lack of some or all punctuation. It produces raw, often unusable material, but allows a writer to overcome blocks of apathy and self-criticism. It is used mainly by prose writers and writing teachers. This technique is also used by some writers to collect their initial thoughts and ideas on a topic, and is often used as a preliminary to more formal writing.

Bilingualism/ Being Bilingual: Bilingualism is the case that occurs when an individual can communicate in two languages. Being bilingual means fully or partially comprehending the messages transmitted in two separate languages. Bilingual people tend to be more creative and flexible. They can be more open-minded, and they find it easier to focus on a variety of tasks simultaneously. Bilingualism plays an important role in today’s world because of globalization so it requires detailed investigation in individual, societal, political, cultural, historical, scientific and global level. Bilingualism strengthens cognitive abilities.

Teaching Rhetorical Appeals: We hear the words “three rhetorical appeals” pretty regularly, especially if you are an English teacher. BUT how do we begin to teach them to college students who are not the native speakers of English? So often, we get thrown into the deep end of high school English without the life preserver of HOW to teach something. We were taught about the appeals, so we know them, but knowledge is rarely the hard part of teaching. The pedagogy, or simply put “your beliefs about teaching,” is tough to wrap your mind around. So how do we teach the Three Rhetorical Appeals to our students? Join this workshop for tips and tricks to make the very beginning of rhetorical analysis with a focus on the three rhetorical appeals a breeze for both you and your students!

Participant quota is limited to 30 people. In the 4-day workshops, participants will present their work in these areas, exchange information and stay updated by sharing best practices. We hope that the workshop will provide maximum contribution to the participants in expanding their cooperation networks, creating new collaborations and internationalization. On the fifth day the city tour and cultural activities will be held.
