Call for SpeakersThe next ELTed – English language teacher education and development talks – will be held on the 2nd December at CES, Dame Court, Dublin.
ELT Ireland are putting out a call for anyone interested in speaking to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. ELT Ireland is an association for Irish-based English language teaching professionals, founded to promote learning, development and best practice through shared knowledge and experiences.
Language teachers, managers and administrators work on a daily basis to help their students wrestle with the challenges of learning a new language. They are constantly developing activities, techniques and approaches to help their students overcome the difficulties they encounter. These practical solutions often go unrecognised and ELTed aims to provide a forum where best practices can be shared.
The event presents a series of twelve-minute talks on a range of ELT-related topics and provides a forum for the recognition of creativity, enables unexpected connections to be made, lays the ground for productive collaborations and inspires others to try things out and get creative themselves. The sort of topics that might be covered at ELTed talks may include:
•A classroom management technique that keeps young learners on task
•A method of helping students with their pronunciation problems
•A way of motivating and monitoring self-study
•Running an educational technology project
•Interesting recruitment and interviewing techniques
•Techniques for motivating staff
• Practical solutions to the many challenges of ELT management
Anyone who is interested in speaking at ELTed should contact email@example.com before 10th November 2017
