and Emily Clark, English Language Specialist with U.S. Department of State/Assistant Language Specialist at the University of Kansas
have the pleasure to invite you to a webinar which will take place
on Thursday, 22nd February 2021, from 8.30 to 9.30 CET.
Continued Professional Development:
Improving Online Teaching Skills While Teaching
Teachers often have limited time and resources for professional development.
Additionally, some professional development may not fit the needs of individual teacher’s contexts.
Finding and creating communities of practice is not always intuitive and with the many demands of online teaching, teacher development through communities may not be a priority.
In this webinar, participants will review areas for continued professional development in online teaching.
Participants will discuss prioritizing the focus of professional development, goal setting, finding opportunities, creating opportunities within teacher networks, and cultivating motivation for professional development.
Participants will leave renewed and goal-centered, with a new community of practice.
After the webinar all participants will receive a certificate of participation.
IATEFL Poland members have priority of registration for this webinar.
Do not delay. The number of participants is limited.
