Trends in teacher training: The needs of trainers in different contexts
TTEdSIG invites trainers from around the world to a day filled with engaging topics on current trends in teacher training, as we aim to help trainers apply new insights into the particular needs and constraints of their training contexts. This year’s PCE is featuring four prominent members of our ELT community, Penny Ur, Sue Garton, Russell Stannard and Briony Beaven. Our remarkable line of speakers will share their knowledge, experience and thoughts with the teacher trainers and educators. Our PCE participants will be able to discuss pertinent issues such as dealing with the training needs of experienced teachers, training in-service teachers to help with the skill development of new generations and how to best meet the needs of pre-service teacher candidates in general and/or in particular whose first language is not English.
