Conference Venue

For its 10th annual conference, ELTA has chosen a venue in which teachers have been studying for decades. Teachers Training Faculty, 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 exibition 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 together with students from the English Department of the Faculty of Philology.

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.
