ELTA Journal

Dear members and colleagues,

ELTA is proud to have published the first issue of ELTA Journal. In this first Editorial we would like to present and explain some of the major ideas that have shaped the creation of ELTA Journal and to adopt the position that will serve as the benchmark for future issues.

The journal is international in its scope and it welcomes contributions from all over the world. In this first issue, there are articles written by researchers and teachers from Japan, Russia, Cyprus and Uruguay in addition to those from Serbia.

We hope you enjoy reading this issue and we look forward to receiving your feedback and article contributions.

Provisional Conference Programme 2013

Dear ELTA members, dear colleagues and conference presenters and participants,

We are happy to announce that you may now download the provisional conference programme for our 11th annual ELTA conference to be held from 10th to 11th May in Belgrade.

This year we have over 40 presentations, lectures and workshops, and we hope the program will help you decide which ones you will attend.

Please note that early bird registration ends on 12th April.

For its 11th annual conference, ELTA has chosen a venue in which teachers have been studying for decades.

Faculty of Education, which is a part of the University of Belgrade, will welcome English teachers for the two days in May and we know it will be suitable and comfortable, with all the needs of teachers catered for.

The Main Hall and six other classrooms will be used for presentations and workshops, whereas the second floor gallery will provide the exhibition area for our partners and sponsors.

The staff lounge on the ground floor will double as a quiet room for presenters, and the faculty’s internet club will be open during the event so all the guests can use the computers there.

ELTA couldn’t organize the event without the assistance of many students of the faculty who will be volunteers at the conference.

We hope to see you there!

Your ELTA team

IATEFL BESIG Workshop in Belgrade

IATEFL BESIG Workshop

25 February 2012

with Carl Dowse

 

An English teacher’s digital toolkit: A practical guide

 

This workshop is for Business English teachers just starting out, or wishing to refresh their  knowledge of using online tools and resources. It will look at a  range of applications, both familiar and less so, that make the organization, sharing and delivering of their web-based teaching materials easier and more effective. Topics to be covered are:

  • Managing the web – rather than it managing you!
  • Google docs – an introduction to cloud computing for teaching purposes
  • Wikis – a simple and effective way of creating virtual learning environments
  • YouTube – practical advice on getting the most from this video sharing website
  • Mobile learning – a brief introduction

Participants will gain hands on experience of using a variety of  powerful web-based tools that can be used to enhance learning in and beyond the classroom.

Carl Dowse has been involved in English language teaching over 20 years, and currently has a full-timelectureship at the Hochschule fur Ökonomie & Management in Essen, Germany, with overall responsibility for undergraduate business English  courses. Carl  has a keen interest in the use of ICT in language teaching and is a member of the Consultants-E teacher training team and moderates a number of courses including an online version of the Cert  IBET and Moodle training  courses. Carl  also writes teaching materials and develops teacher training materials for world-wide use within the British Council. He is currently the Web Coordinator for the IATEFL Business English Special Interest Group.

To enrol for the conference, please contact Akos Gerold, the IATEFL BESIG Development Coordinator at akos.gerold@besig.org. As the overall number of places and the number of available desktop computers is limited, all participants are kindly asked to bring their laptops if they have one. Please indicate whether you are coming with a laptop when enrolling  for the workshop. The workshop is free of charge, and applications will be processed on a first come – first served basis.
