講者簡介 (Presenter Profile)
Dr. Herbert Puchta
—ELT and Thinking Skills Development Guru of Our Time

Herbert holds a Ph.D. in English Language Teaching Pedagogy and has over 30 years of experience in language teaching and research; he was also the former president of IATEFL (International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language). For decades, he has been diligently working on leading researches on the practical application of cognitive psychology and brain research to the teaching of English as a foreign language, which is remarkably fruitful. As a world renowned ELT researcher, author and education expert, he has been invited to be a plenary speaker at numerous international conferences and has conducted training workshops and seminars in more than 50 countries.
Dr. Puchta excels in language learning materials writing, and some of his famous works include Super Safari for learners aged 3 to 6, and the classic English in Mind for secondary learning.

講座議題 (Presentation Topic)
Helping Pre-school Children and Young Learners to Think in English
Teaching English to pre-school and young learners in the digital era: Laying the foundations for life-long learning. Today’s young learners are growing up into an ever-changing and unpredictable world – a world that is characterised by instant availability of information, but at the same time an enormous information overload. As educators, we need to respond to this challenge. We can do this best by equipping our learners with key basic cognitive skills while they are still young. Research in cognitive science shows that these skills are important, because they lay the foundations for the higher-order thinking that is required for learners to develop the tools they will need for lifelong learning. That is, to assess and evaluate a vast expanse of data, to understand unexpected challenges, to think ‘outside the box’, to make decisions, to solve problems and to evaluate their own performance. Finally, we will discuss what we as teachers can do to help develop the ‘growth mindsets’ that our students need to foster their resilience, motivation, emotional engagement and creativity – all of which are needed for academic success.
Fostering Responsibility and Response-Ability in the Teenage Classroom
Brain research reveals why teenagers are prone to risk-taking and irresponsible behaviour yet have amazing potential for cognitive development and social adaptability. Using this knowledge, we discuss how to help teens speak competently and confidently, by fostering their self-esteem and engaging them in clarification of values and critical thinking. Practical examples will come from Herbert’s new teen course, Think.
