Happy learning in the new year!!

Posted by Illya on 23 December 2011

The year 2011 is slowly coming to a close and the holidays will soon begin.  I hope this year was a good one for all of you readers.

And for the new year, I’d like to give you a head start!

Hopefully all of you ETAS members have already added a very important weekend to your diaries: the 28-29 January when the AGM weekend takes place in Yverdon.

If you haven’t registered yet, then head on over to e-tas.ch and do so before 30th December.

You will find the complete program here, and you can register here. It looks like a great weekend ahead of us!!

But wait, there’s more!

The Electronic Village On-line (EVO) sessions will be from the 9th January until the 12the February- 5 great weeks of on-line (and free!) learning.

If you’ve never heard of EVO, then you should look into it. Basically, it’s a group of very dedicated teachers and trainers working for nothing to bring people across the glode together in learning. Here’s the blurb:

For five weeks in January-February, participants and ESOL experts can engage in collaborative, online discussion or hands-on virtual workshops of professional and scholarly benefit. These sessions will bring together participants for a longer period of time than is permitted by the land-based convention and will allow a fuller development of ideas than is otherwise possible.

There’s a wide variety of sessions to choose from, not all specifically to do with technology (such as Drama, a longstanding session!)

I speak from experience when I say that it can make a big difference to the way you look at teaching and learning. I certainly have learned at least as much at any EVO session as any face to face course I’ve ever attended.

And now I wish you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS / HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A GREAT NEW YEAR!!!
