    Dear TESOL Adherents
    I  am going to launch Canvas Course in Pakistan  !st August 2021. Online Canvas course  for English teachers is designed in Pakistan for the first time and introueced from the platform of RELO Pakistan at US Embassy.This course aims to make English teachers to learn different methods and approaches of language teaching in Pakistani context. They will also become digital literate and can easily design oonline activities for their students at such critical time when educational institutions are closed due to pandemic. We received 100 applications for 20 seats in course. The selected participants are showing great enthusiasm for this course.
    Below is the promo image of Course.

    Your course sounds very interesting. I am involved in a language teacher education project, but it is my first time to do so. Would any of your materials happen to be available for people who are not enrolled in the course?

    Nyla,
    I am so glad you are doing this!  I have worked for a RELO project funded by the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad too!.
    We had to conduct teacher training also.  It would be great if your 20 teachers could see the TEFL methods that we do on the radio.
    The project is still going and expanding on the radio daily on Power99 radio.

    I hope that I can meet you someday when I can return to Pakistan.

    Hi Ana Lado
    its really very nice to hear from you. I was one of the participants in your training on International Resource Person in 2015 funded by US Embassy in Lahore. I still have notes and handsout you shared with us during the training. What a vibrant training it was.
    It is my pleasure to tell you that all 20 teachers are learning teaching methods and approaches. I incorporated approaches with online resources in discussion boards and assignments. Today I post a whatsapp poll in the group and I am enjoying the idea that how interesting it is to use online resources to engage teachers.
    Of course I will recommend  your Power99 radio and my teachers will give you feedback as well. my email id is uzmakhizer1@gmail.com
