"In this webinar, we will look at some of the most useful activities and strategies for ELT and CLIL students to mediate texts, concepts and communication. Together, we will analyse a series of relevant tasks and extrapolate the strategies that our primary and secondary students need to use, or need scaffolding for, and then reapply, to complete each one of them. We will also see how most of the activities we already run in class, or find in our ELT or CLIL coursebook, can be easily and minimally tweaked for us to help our students develop useful mediation strategies.

Riccardo Chiappini is an ELT materials writer and teacher trainer based in Madrid. On top of mediation, his main interests are 21st-century skills, exam material development and the practical application of the CEFR to the ELT and CLIL classroom. He has developed print and digital content on mediation as well as exam materials for major publishers and institutions, such as Oxford University Press and the Spanish Ministry of Education and he regularly contributes to ELT blogs and magazines, such as Macmillan’s Advancing Learning and Pavillion’s MET and ETp. Most recently, he has been co-authoring a resource book of mediation activities for DELTA Publishing."
