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?

For the full programme and how to register go here. You can double check the time zones via TimeAndDate.com.

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.

YL bonus

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?
