Ask me anything panel by Cambridge University Press
Motivating students can be difficult at the best of times, let alone in the middle of a global pandemic. Our Ask Me Anything panel of teaching experts answer your questions about motivation, whether you’re teaching online or face-to-face, adults or young learners. TTEdSIG coordinator, Dr. Burcu Tezcan-Unal was invited to join the panel that took place on May 6th with Matt Ellman, Olha Madylus & Michael Tomlinson. The link to this informal chat as a resource for those who have been involved in online teaching in various contexts can be reached at https://www.facebook.com/CambridgeUPELT/videos/240830373898202/
TTEd Harrogate 2021 PCE – ‘Trends in teacher training: The needs of trainers in different contexts.’
TTEdSIG is pleased to inform you that the event we had planned for our PCE 2020 in Manchester, postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will take place in Harrogate 2021. All of our speakers have kindly agreed to conduct their sessions as planned.
The wide range of themes brought by this impressive group of speakers will help trainers apply new insights into the particular needs and contexts of their training realities. Five well-known members of the ELT community – Penny Ur, Sue Garton, Kathleen Graves, Russell Stannard and Briony Beaven – will share their knowledge, experience and thoughts with teacher trainers and educators. The discussion will be around pertinent issues such as experienced teachers’ training needs, training in-service teachers, developing the skills of future generations of teachers, as well as meeting the needs of pre-service teachers whose first language may not be English.
