The General Foundation Program conducted a workshop on Using Technology in Teaching Writing from 8:30 to 10:00 am on 26th April 2018 in the Multimedia Lab on the Ground Floor in the College premises. The workshop was facilitated by Mr. Wayne Williams, who is an English language instructor in GFP. Mr. Williams guided the audience through one of his lesson plans to demonstrate integrating technology into teaching Writing and to illustrate adopting task-based teaching in eliciting ideas from students at the pre-writing stage. PowerPoint presentations, video clips, sound bites, images are few of the varied technological options that could be beneficial in teaching paragraph and essay writing. It has been decided that the PowerPoint slides that introduce each writing genre should be uploaded on class folders, so students can conveniently have an access to them. At the end of the workshop, Mr. El-Amin, the Head of the General Foundation Program, wrapped the session up, by recognizing the effort of the facilitator, outlining an action plan to implement the recommendations of the workshop, and announcing the upcoming staff development events.
