The purpose of this project was to develop teaching materials for online tutoring sessions using Zoom. The teaching materials include lesson plans, PowerPoint presentations, and recorded online sessions for IELTS Speaking Preparation, TOEFL Speaking Preparation, and Transition to Business courses. Each course includes ten 50-minute tutoring sessions. The workshop will include the following sections:
- Overview of the three courses (general information about IELTS/TOEFL, why these tests are important for international students, Transition to Business and transition courses in general, structure of the courses, lesson plans, etc.)
- Examples of how to use Zoom in online tutoring sessions (share screening, giving feedback in real time, etc.)
- Examples from recorded tutoring sessions (warm-up activities, new vocabulary, speaking exercises, case studies for the Transition to Business course, etc.)
- Future directions (the follow-up project on the effects of teacher-student interaction on task performance)
- Q&A session
