Date: Saturday 9th March at 2pm GMT
Presenter: Marisa Constantinides
From teacher to teacher educator is a career move that many teachers find themselves contemplating and/or pursuing, some as a natural next step to their ELT career and some as a result of relevant studies at postgraduate level. Once ‘in the field’ though, there is little there to help the new/novice trainer with their continuous professional development. In this talk, I hope to share some ideas and available resources to help new trainers who may feel isolated and lack opportunities for further development in their local context.
