The fall is a great time to work on professional development, and here is a great resource: a series of eight free webinars during the week of October 15-19.
The webinar topics include ideas for teaching grammar; developing academic listening skills; working with photos and images; using short stories; helpings students become self-directed learners; using popular songs; developing critical thinking skills; and 21st century teaching.
The presenters include fellow TESOL professionals Sara Davila, Sybil Marcus, Joe McVeigh, Ken Beatty, Sandra Heyer, Sarah Lynn, Michael Rost, and Geneva Tesh.
These webinars are sponsored by Pearson as part of their 4th Annual ELT Webinar Series. They take place throughout the week at either 12:00pm or 2:00pm Eastern Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust for your own time zone. All of the webinars are free, but you must register separately for each one. All registered participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
