Active SIG's

Read English Actively for Language and Life Skills (REALL) SIG

Read...imagine....draw, sing, or act the story! Collaborative, and creative, it’s active, social, and fun. It’s REALL: Read English Actively for Language and Life Skills, an innovative way to celebrate novels and stories via the arts. Established by Alison Larkin Koushki, Senior Instructor in AUK’s Intensive English Program, students enhance all 4 language skills while mining the riches of literature, then portraying them as art and performance. Sound, lights, costumes, acting – in REALL, students form teams, whether on stage or backstage, script, reporting, make-up or “Writer’s Corner,” and work together to enliven the narrative. The learning imprint lasts because it’s REALL.

Private Sector

This SIG is focused on the teaching and use of English in the Private Sector especially in the Knowledge Economy. That means the use and teaching of English in “informal” education as differentiated from the Educational Institutions. This SIG will support the needs of Executives, Human Resources Managers, Department Managers and Project Managers who are managing a multi-lingual workforce and the communications challenges that environment poses. The SIG is chaired by Dana Winner who brings 45 years of business experience. SIG members are Administrators and Teachers of ESL, Business and Information Management, business executives and managers, especially HRM specialists.
