14th ELTA Serbia Conference

Learning, relationships, and education are a painstaking endeavor, much like nurturing a garden. It takes time and effort to grow.

What best teachers do is, they teach people, not programs. They provide conditions for their students to grow. They pay attention to each and every student. They listen. They never stop learning. They adopt and adapt. They make a difference.

Are you one of those teachers?

What is obvious to you, might be amazing to others – share your knowledge and experience with us at 14th ELTA Conference!

Abstract submission deadline: 8 March 2016
Early bird registration deadline: 22 April 2016

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.

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.
