6 BLOCK A WORKSHOP 1 (RM.306) TEACHING ADULT LEARNERS THE ART OF PRESENTATION Presenter: Professor Robert Soroka Although adult education and vocational training centers cultivate skills that make students more attractive to employers, jobs are commonly lost at the interview or in the first weeks at work, often due to poor presentation skills. Exhibiting fear, anxiety, trepidation or a lack of confidence may lead the potential or new employer to make incorrect conclusions about the new recruit s competency level. In this workshop we will focus on creating an effective way for instructors to teach presentation skills. Using a hybrid of some basic theatrical techniques and generally accepted presentation principles, we will examine the human body as a communication instrument, and discuss the ways in which instructors may guide adult students to train one s body language and speaking voice to convey a confident, resonant message that is consistent with the competencies they are marketing. Professor Robert Soroka (B.Com-McGill, MBA-Concordia, Juris Doctor-SUNY) is known to be a dynamic speaker. His background is diverse: criminal lawyer, professor, marketing analyst, TV and radio personality, conference speaker, actor, and playwright. Professor Soroka teaches business and law courses at Concordia and McGill Universities, and at Dawson College. He has previously taught at the University of Ottawa, Université de Montréal, and several CEGEPs. At Dawson, he served as both Chair and Program Coordinator and founded the annual Dawson Quebec Case Competition. His teaching has been recognized: he received Concordia University s Distinguished Teaching Award (1997) and the McGill MUS Teaching Award (2009). Professor Soroka is a private consultant for both public and private organizations, primarily in the areas of retail, health care, entrepreneurship, and education. Professor Soroka has made over 1400 national and local television and radio appearances, and has previously hosted a week-in-review show for several years. Professor Soroka s passion is theatre; he has authored several plays, all of which have been produced. 6

7 BLOCK A WORKSHOP 2 (RM. 310) COMMUNICATING WITH MEANING WHILE MAXIMIZING INFLUENCE AND POWER Presenter: George Dracopoulos What separates good leaders from great leaders is their ability to communicate effectively and their capacity to understand and maximize their power. This task is particularly difficult in an educational setting, where leaders face major financial constraints and contractual rules that limit their decision-making options. In this workshop, we will examine the following key questions: What are some of the obstacles to effective communication? How do we communicate with meaning to our constituents? What is meant by power in a classroom setting? In a staff meeting setting? How can we maximize our power while minimizing conflict in an educational environment with peers, supervisors, and subordinates? This will be a practical and interactive session designed to help us sharpen the messages we construct and send to our audiences every day. George Dracopoulos is a marketing and management professor at McGill University and Vanier College. He has co-authored six business texts and has been invited to provide motivational speeches, seminars and keynote addresses across North America and Europe. In his career as an educator, George has been honoured with awards and distinctions for his teaching ability and for his entrepreneurial knack of creating programs and building real-world links for his students. For example, he has created bridges with more than ten universities in Europe and is responsible for over five hundred student exchanges and cross-continent internships. He is also the co-founder and a key organizer of the only National Collegiate Marketing Case Competition held in Canada. Each year the event is attended by students from every corner of the nation (including the Yukon). George Dracopoulos has also provided consulting services for a range of small and large companies, educational institutions and publishers. * This workshop is highly recommended for administrators and professionals 7

8 BLOCK A WORKSHOP 3 (RM 303) THE ART OF DETERMINATION: THE IMPORTANCE OF STAMINA Presenter: Dr. Karen Gazith Many adults struggle in school, not because of their lack of ability but due to a lack of motivation to achieve. The problem often stems from attitude towards school and not from capacity. With the right skills in place, many adults will be able to set goals and achieve them. In this session, teachers will learn how to increase student motivation, interest and ultimately students ability to persevere. Dr. Karen Gazith has taught in special needs institutions and schools, including the Instrumental Enrichment Institute with Dr. Feuerstein. She is now the Academic Dean of UTT/Herzliah and an adjunct professor in the Department of Educational and Counseling Psychology at McGill University. She has presented on topics related to meeting diverse needs in the classroom in many cities in Canada, the U.S., England, Israel and Australia. 8

9 BLOCK A WORKSHOP 4 (RM 305) RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES: SPECIAL NEEDS STUDENTS AND TEACHERS Presenter: Me Julius Grey AEVS has a variety of programs aimed at serving adults with special needs both in our centres and in the community. Our teachers have asked for clarification regarding the rights and responsibilities of the teachers as well as the rights of the students. Me Grey will share his vast knowledge of this issue from a legal perspective and will discuss issues arising from the Canadian and Quebec charters. Me Julius Grey was educated in Montreal where he obtained a BA (Great Distinction) in 1970, a BCL in 1971, and an MA in He also studied at Oxford University where he received a BCL (1st class) in His professional experience includes Research Assistant for the Law Reform Commission (Sentencing) in 1972, Stagiaire at O Brien Hall Saunders ( ), Lawyer at Lapointe Rosenstein ( ), Counsel at Lazare, Altschuler ( ).

10 BLOCK A WORKSHOP 5 (RM 307) THE ART OF DETERMINATION: THE IMPORTANCE OF STAMINA Presenter: Linda Shohet International assessments such as IALS and PIACC and glaring newspaper headlines have reported for 20 years on adults skills deficits in literacy, numeracy, and problem-solving -- most recently in technology-rich environments. Yet employers, surveyed directly, speak more often of lack of motivation, work ethic, interpersonal communication, teamwork, and persistence (also known as grit ). These are often defined as soft skills in the work world or as life skills in various curriculum frameworks. They are almost never measured because they are difficult to capture, hence the designation soft (as opposed to hard data). However, some recent research and international bodies such as the OECD acknowledge that these skills may be as important as, or more than, cognitive skills. They also suggest that learning can increase these skills. Can adult education teachers focus more explicitly on these skills in the classroom? This session will look at some case studies that used new ways to measure the impact of learning on soft skills and suggest classroom strategies that embed the teaching of these skills across all subject areas. Participants will practice selected strategies Linda Shohet is founder and executive director of The Centre for Literacy, a national centre of expertise on literacy and essential skills that links research, policy and practice. She has taught, written and presented widely and advised governments for more than 30 years, and facilitated The Centre s annual institutes since 1990 including recently on international adult literacy assessments. PIAAC, the first such survey to measure adults problem-solving in technology-rich environments, released results in October Linda has also worked in health literacy, created information kits for cancer patients, and served on a 2007 Pan-Canadian Expert Panel. She wrote the content for an on-line continuing medical education course to introduce health literacy to doctors, accredited by the Royal College of Physicians. Linda has been named a top literacy researcher by the Canadian Education Association (2004) and awarded a Queen s Diamond Jubilee Medal (2012) for contributions to Canada. 10

11 BLOCK A WORKSHOP 6 (RM 308) PRONUNCIATION TEACHING AND TECHNOLOGY: TEXT READERS, SPEECH RECOGNITION, AND DIGITAL GAMES Presenter: Dr. Walcir Cardoso This workshop will introduce you to three technologies to enhance your students experience learning English pronunciation: Text readers (or Text-to-speech synthesizers), automatic speech recognition, and digital gaming (Spaceteam ESL, a free mobile shouting game developed at Concordia by Waddington & Cardoso). Using these three technologies, this workshop will emphasize the following recommendations for pronunciation teaching: (1) provide students with varied and personalized opportunities to use the language (focus on listening and speaking); (2) emphasize spelling-to-sound rules to empower students with predictive skills; (3) encourage practice and repetition; (4) provide immediate feedback; and (5) develop oral fluency. This workshop will focus on learner-centered approaches to teaching and learning pronunciation, with hands-on ideas on how to motivate your students to extend learning beyond the walls of the English classroom. Dr. Walcir Cardoso is an Associate Professor in the Department of Education, Concordia University. He conducts research in second language acquisition of phonology with the goal of promoting an effective and socially realistic pedagogy for the teaching of pronunciation. His research interest also includes the investigation of the effects of computer technology (e.g., the use of clickers, gaming, text-to-speech synthesizers, speech recognition, and web 2.0 applications) on the learning of foreign/second languages. He has been the recipient of three awards for excellence in teaching and one for research in foreign language education. Outside of academia, he writes about audio equipment, works as a consultant designing and evaluating brand names, plays the clarinet and a MIDI player, and experiences other worlds in the form of music, poetry, food, and cinema. 11

12 BLOCK A WORKSHOP 7 (RM 304) AN INTRODUCTION TO DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP Presenter: Avi Spector The 21st century has transformed how students find, access, use and create information. However, resources and curriculum for teaching Digital Citizenship in adult education is often lacking or overlooked. What are the essential skills for Digital Citizenship? How do we guide students to respect the rights of others? How do they protect themselves? Participants will learn about the essential elements of Digital Citizenship and how to think critically about digital footprints, online safety, plagiarism and copyrights. Avi Spector is a pedagogical consultant with the Riverside School Board and the RECIT FGA Regional Service. Avi is also a member of the K-12 Adobe Education Leaders Program. With a strong belief that pedagogy should always drive technology in the classroom, Avi helps teachers find relevant and sustainable ways of using technology to enhance learning and develop student competencies. 12

13 BLOCK A WORKSHOP 8 (RM 309) EMOTIONALLY SPEAKING: USING THEATRICAL PRONUNCIA- TION TECHNIQUES IN THE LANGUAGE CLASSROOM Presenter: Suzanne Cerreta This workshop will highlight some simple theatrical techniques aiming at more comprehensible pronunciation, including the Spring Board Method, vocal posture, sentence stress in a meaningful context, and connected speech exercises that can easily be incorporated into the English L2 classroom. Additionally, newly researched in linguistics, but used often in theatrical practice, the cold reading (semi-controlled) activity will be introduced and ways of using this activity for pronunciation will be explained. Suzanne Cerreta graduated with honours from Carnegie Mellon University with a BFA in Acting, and has since been the voice of many U.S. commercial campaigns, such as Revlon, VEET, Olia, Campbell s Select Harvest, Ragu, Toshiba, Airwick, and more. She has taught accents and dialects for over 12 years in NYC to actors on Broadway, TV, and Film, and you can check out some of her work at She will be the voice of Kathy in the major motion picture A Most Violent Year, starring Jessica Chastain. She is currently a master s candidate in Applied Linguistics, and testing her pronunciation curriculum derived from theatrical speech practices. Her interests are in pronunciation research and instruction, as well as sharing the benefits of theatrical speech training with second language English learners. She hopes to contribute to the line of pronunciation research that promotes and facilitates greater comprehensibility within meaningful and engaging contexts. 13

14 BLOCK B WORKSHOP 1 (RM. 306) TEACHING ADULT LEARNERS HOW TO MARKET THEMSELVES Presenter: Professor Robert Soroka According to management expert Tom Peters, We are CEOs of our own companies: Me Inc. To be in business today, our most important job is to be head marketer of a brand called You. In this workshop we will focus on how to help students create their own personal branding strategy by learning how to identify and define one s target audience (employers, bankers, government, etc.), doing a down and dirty situation analysis, creating a promotional strategy that delivers a resonant message, and by considering other techniques that will position the prospective employee/entrepreneur optimally. Professor Robert Soroka (B.Com-McGill, MBA-Concordia, Juris Doctor-SUNY) is known to be a dynamic speaker. His background is diverse: criminal lawyer, professor, marketing analyst, TV and radio personality, conference speaker, actor, and playwright.

15 BLOCK B WORKSHOP 2 (RM 310) CONNECTING WITH MILLENNIALS Presenter: George Dracopoulos The angst-ridden Gen Xers no longer dominate our workplaces; we have come face-to-face with an environment that has been severely altered by Generation Y-Millennials. In this workshop, we will look at the evolving and diverging interests within the millennial segment. Millennial expectations are vastly different than their predecessors, the Baby Boomers and Generation X. The silver spoon has been replaced with a silver smart phone. Texting, tweeting and faceless interaction is the norm. Old rules have been broken and a new digital frontier is evolving daily. In this interactive workshop we will do more than repeat assumptions and commonalities; we will take a look at the Millennials themselves and try to identify how this group is changing. We will try to answer questions like: How are Millennials different from previous age cohorts? and What are their real expectations? We will look at key issues and discuss practical approaches to address the following sources of stress: technology, globalization, time management, competitive landscapes, and alienation. This is a practical look at how to deal with the challenges imposed by the millennial way of life. George Dracopoulos is a marketing and management professor at McGill University and Vanier College. He has co-authored six business texts and has been invited to provide motivational speeches, seminars and keynote addresses across North America and Europe.

17 BLOCK B WORKSHOP 4 (RM 305) HOW TO KEEP STUDENTS MOTIVATED Presenter: Lina Maiorano This hands-on workshop takes you through the initial steps of capturing your students attention and keeping them motivated to learn. It is tailored for teachers who need the key to open the door to both positive learning and a feeling of connection with their students. Lina will guide you according to her knowledge and experience on the importance of a sense of awareness in the classroom, of being sensitive to students needs and of being creative with the subject at hand. The right atmosphere brings great results! Lina Maiorano is a CCBE teacher at the St. Laurent Adult Education Centre and has conducted workshops for the Ministry of Education on Motivation. She holds a Bachelor of Education Degree from McGill and a Bachelor of Theatre Degree from Concordia University. Lina has written and directed plays for children at the Leonardo da Vinci and Segal Centres. Her experience and knowledge has led her to use a lot of animation techniques to create realistic situations in the classroom in order to enhance students learning. 17

18 BLOCK B WORKSHOP 5 (RM 307) THE ESSENCE OF WELL-BEING: HOW OUR SENSES, FROM BOTH INSIDE AND OUT, DETERMINE OUR IDENTITY AND OUR INTERACTIONS Presenter: Anne Marie Couture Sensory processing is the neurological process that allows us to use sensory stimulation in an organized manner. It involves a coordinated action of our senses (tactile, proprioceptive, vestibular, auditory, visual, olfactory, gustatory) and our brain thus allowing us to perceive what is happening in our bodies and in our environment, to interpret it and to respond with an appropriate action (emotion, physical action, reflection, communication). Sensory processing is essential for a harmonious global development as well as a sense of well-being. Most notably, it allows us to be well in our skin, to trust the outside world as well as to develop social skills and adapted behaviors. It is also a fundamental part of motor development that is crucial for autonomy, communication, and learning. Difficulties processing sensory information are very common in persons with special needs. Challenges may be related to genetic factors or caused by difficult, painful, traumatic life experiences. Even though sensory processing difficulties have been well documented for more than forty years, it remains the fact that little is known and even understood about them. This workshop aims to sensitize those present; allow them to observe and understand individuals, including their negative behaviors, from a different angle; and provide them with strategies to deal with the associated challenges. Individual sensory needs and the acceptance of them are at the heart of this meeting. Anne Marie Couture B.Sc. OT is an occupational therapist with more than 25 years of experience. She cofounded the center La Maison de L enfance in 1997 and founded the therapeutic center l Essence en Mouvement in She works primarily with children and adolescents with special needs as well as their families. She also developed several projects, namely one in a regular school as well as one for adolescents with severe behavior problems. She also participated in a project for adults on the autistic spectrum who have behavior problems. Annemarie teaches on a regular basis to parents, teachers, professionals (OT; PT; SLP) and educators in different milieus, as well as at the University of Sherbrooke in the occupational therapy master s program. *This workshop is highly recommended for SIS teachers 18
