EVO sessions – online workshops for Language teacher development

Posted by Illya on 3 January 2010

If you happen to have a bit of flexible time on your hands the for the next two months, then there is another excellent chance to expand your skills and knowledge as a teacher. The EVO sessions, which have been going on for quite some time, are offering 6-week workshops on-line, and all you have to do is sign up here.

The EVO sessions are run by highly motivated and experienced teachers expressly for language teachers from all over the world and are a great opportunity for those interested in using technologies but without experience, and for those looking for new ways to apply their knowledge and experience.  For beginners a great session is Becoming a Webhead.

Other sessions deal with online games, images for teaching and learning, videos, and internet for kids, etc.

But not everything revolves around technologies, although all the sessions use yahoogroups and other internet tools. You can also join the very active Drama session or find out how to travel the world with your students from the computer.

It begins 11th January and registration is from 4th Jan-10th Jan, so do sign up immediately if you are interested.

AGM 2010 – Biel Coming this January!!

Posted by Illya on 3 January 2010

Welcome to 2010, and I hope this year will be a fabulous one!!!

Well, it’s starting out with a bang.

Closest to home is the AGM in Biel on 30-31st January.

It is full of interesting workshops on everything from vocabulary and grammar to drawing and drama, and of course technologies and specific interests.  Two less common exam formats in Switzerland are being looked at in more depth – the IELTS and the PTE  (previously London Test of English), and exercises are being made interesting while learners learn to learn.

It’s too late to register on-line. but you can certainly come and register on-site.

You can find more information about it here.
