Towards Better Understanding – 4th year in a row

In early September we had an opportunity to present the TBU 4 project and the 10th ELTA Annual Conference at the Regional Centres of Kruševac, Leskovac and Smederevo. The idea was to get the teachers interested in the acrredited programs at the beginning of a new academic year when the plans for professional development are being made. These presentations resulted in a busy schedule during the months that followed.

The first in a series of TBU 4 seminars was held in The Regional Center of Kruševac on 19th November 2011. The modern venue was a gathering place for about 25 English teachers from Kruševac and nearby towns. TBU seminars are designed and run by Serbian teachers who understand what kind of challenges their fellow colleagues face in their teaching practice. This seminar was another opportunity to tackle the problems of assessing in large classes, limited choice of teaching materials, making a professional development plan and taking different roles as a teacher, which were all addressed in four 90-minute workshops. At the beginning of the seminar, we had another opportunity to invite the teachers to attend ELTA 2012 Conference, share the memories from the past ones and remind them how important it is to be an ELTA member.



In accordance with the theme Teaching Outside the Box, ELTA 2012 Conference will focus on innovative teaching methods. To this end, we are soliciting proposals that investigate innovations in all aspects of EFL methodology and original approaches to teaching different age groups, courses and levels.
