Global Resources in ESP: Teacher-Training in ESP Best Practices

Hello, ESPers worldwide!

I received an e-mail recently from a TESOL ESPer conducting teacher-training in ESP best practices. I assume that some of you may be doing the same.

In this regard, you may find the following resources to be of value in your teacher-training efforts. These resources and much more can be accessed in the ESP Interest Section Library in the TESOL Community Network.

  • TESOL ESP virtual seminar on ESP best practices
  • ESP PowerPoints on various ESP best practices
  • Article on ESP theory that underlies ESP best practices
  • Links to TESOL Community discussions on ESP

As you develop your own resources that can help others to teach ESP, be sure to upload them to the Library.  In that way, we can all help each other to develop as professionals.

Good luck in your ESP teacher-training efforts!
