ESOLSIG: Bringing fun back to the challenge of online teaching
Join IATEFL ESOLSIG and Pauline Blake-Johnston for this webinar on Thursday 21 January at 20.00 UK time.
Without doubt, ESOL practitioners are facing daily challenges teaching in online settings, with consistent complaints that it is difficult to recreate an ESOL class in a Zoom or Teams room. Many are feeling that the more enjoyable aspects of working in ESOL are being lost.
This is a light-hearted chance to learn, or perhaps, re-learn some fun and easy elements you could introduce to your online classroom that might just ease the burden and stress of online teaching. We’ll also aim to remind you how to have fun in the classroom, whichever class that might be, with your students.
