TDSIG: Alternative forms of teacher development

Typically, when our profession thinks of development opportunities, we often default to certification courses, post-graduate programs, and conferences. Without question, these can be valuable modes for a teacher to develop professionally. However, they can have barriers to access that are out of our control. At this event, we’re putting teacher-driven development at the heart of the discussion.

In this revised online post-conference event, our TDSIG community will explore alternative forms of teacher development practices, such as action research, curriculum planning, reflective practice, and a dialogic approach. Along with experience-based talks, we will dive into the topics with each other and with the speakers in several engaging open-space sessions (this time, food and drink of your choice is encouraged!). Our PCE topics won’t end on this day either: we’ll share our plans to bring your participation and contribution towards a sustainable action plan for us all! Finally (and perhaps quite enticing…), we will be giving away five individual IATEFL + TDSIG one-year memberships, as well as a few other goodies.

We can’t wait to finally see you!
