Free CALL Conference Webcasts

The CALL-IS is hosting several free webcasts during the TESOL conference starting tomorrow.  If you’re at the conference, you can attend these live events.

Otherwise, those not attending can login as a guest to AdobeConnect during the live broadcasts.  Once logged in, you’ll be able to text chat your questions and comments with the moderator of these sessions.  If you’re unable to view these at their scheduled time, a recording will be made available on the CALL-IS Moodle after the conference.  All times are in Eastern Standard Time (EST) which is GMT-4.  To assist you, I’ve created a World Clock Event Time Announcer for each session (view links below).

    I am interested in any information out there, concerning teacher training in CALL. I teach in a public school setting, in the US. and would like to find professional development opportunities available.
    Thank you, Ms. Moore

    Gail’s work was pivotal to the reeasrch I did for my masters thesis, and Learners Lives as Curriculum was one of the major inspirations for the volunteer-based program model I developed in 2004 , which is now a new nonprofit organization. I never had a chance to work with her, but meeting her at TESOL conventions was always a joy and shot of enthusiasm. Her workshops always focused on the possible rather than as a reaction to the prescriptive policies that were and are weighing down our profession.
