HLT.digital: Teaching for Tommorrow

A two-day conference for English language teachers, which took place in Bratislava, Slovakia on 23rd and 24th February, 2024 was organized by the project partner – the Bridge.

HLT – Humanism in Language Teaching, is what we believe in when it comes to teaching languages. At the HLT.digital conference, were presented HLT practitioners who have introduced humanistic approaches to the classroom and helped to reshape the learning process with the student at the centre.

The concept of “human” is evolving beyond individuals to all living things, communities, and nature. Our planet is facing unprecedented environmental challenges, with globalization now extending far beyond travel and cultural exchange to encompass issues like climate change and migration. The world’s problems are global and we need a common language to find solutions, to help to protect what is alive.

As educators, what role do we play in navigating these challenges? What impact can we, as teachers, have on the broader narrative? Can schools serve as catalysts for positive change?

These were the critical questions we explored and discussed at our conference in February. Check the photos from the event.
