Today and tomorrow (19-20 January) the TESOL Community is hosting an online discussion on empirical and practical perspectives on teacher effectiveness in ELT, which will also be the topic of my Presidential Plenary at the TESOL 2012 Annual Convention & English Language Expo. The plenary is scheduled for 8:30 am, Friday, 30 March.
The online discussion is already underway. I have posted an introduction and some questions to think about, and I’ll be checking in as time permits to reply to comments.
You can access the discussion by visiting the TESOL Community. Everyone can read the discussion. TESOL members and registered convention attendees can post comments. Nonmembers who would like to post must register for the discussion. (It’s free!)
