The next session in our monthly seminars for teachers (EduCation@EduNation) will take place next Sunday 30th March at 12:00 PST (Second Life Time), 19:00 UTC or 21:00 CET. The session is entitled “Watching Teachers Watch Themselves” and will be led in-world by Dirk Beatty.
Many of you will not know Dirk, but if you’re involved in English Language Teaching (ELT) you will most certainly be familiar with the person driving the avatar: Jeremy Harmer, best-selling ELT author, international speaker and all-round expert in all matters related to English teaching in the real world.
This is a real-world talk (rather than being about education in SL itself) looking at teacher observation and how teachers perceive their work and their teaching practice. This session concerns the teacher observation Jeremy carried out whole preparing the new edition of ‘How to Teach English‘ [ Pearson Longman, 2007 ]. More about this project can be found in the DVD that accompanies the printed book.
We look forward to welcoming Jeremy in-world next Sunday and also to a lively session which ELT teachers worldwide will undoubtedly enjoy and benefit from. If you’re not yet registered for the series, visit the sign-up stands in-world on EduNation III.
