Coming up on Friday and Saturday this week is IATEFL’s free web conference: WebCon17. There are more than 10 different hour-long webinars on a range of topics.
I’m particularly looking forward to:
- Elvis is not dead: dealing with ethics and fake news in the lower secondary classroom (approx 11:00 GMT on Saturday, 25th November)
- Developing learner autonomy in practice (12:00 GMT on Saturday, 25th November)
- Current thinking on how pronunciation is best taught (17:00 GMT on Saturday, 25th November)
How to join?
The webinars are free if you watch them live, while IATEFL members can also watch them at a later date. Twitter will be active I’m sure, on the hashtag #webcon17.
If that isn’t enough, there’s also an interesting joint YL-Research Group webinar on Sunday: Research in the primary English classroom: Collecting informed consent from children (15:00 GMT on Sunday 26th November)
Over to you: Are you planning to attend any of the webinars this weekend?
