angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:02:09 Who is around #eltchat
theteacherjames 2016-02-10T21:02:43 @angelos_bollas I'm here, ready for action! #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 2016-02-10T21:03:10 @angelos_bollas sort off but am multitasking #eltchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:04:20 Am around but also working on stuff - anyone else? #eltchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:04:26 @Shaunwilden Methinks, we need your input re training #eltchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:04:55 @Marisa_C We need your input on the training topic, too, dear #ELTchat boss!
Shaunwilden 2016-02-10T21:05:08 @angelos_bollas Actually I have little to say on it, am not sure what the purpose of the topic is #eltchat
vickyloras 2016-02-10T21:05:30 #ELTChat I'm here as well : )
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:05:53 Well no - my recollections are too far in the past - tho they did shape who i am as a trainer! #eltchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:05:55 I'm here now too #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:06:04 #ELTchat - a hashtag not to be forgotten :) https://t.co/HJ8Z1YyKge

theteacherjames 2016-02-10T21:06:27 @Shaunwilden @angelos_bollas Gives us a chance to reflect on what we'd like to see in training that is perhaps neglected. #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:06:53 @SueAnnan Yay! All mods here! :-D #eltchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:07:15 More classroom management techniques would be useful #ELTchat
vickyloras 2016-02-10T21:07:18 @Marisa_C Kala Marisa mou! All good and hope you too : ) #ELTChat
vickyloras 2016-02-10T21:07:36 @angelos_bollas Hi Angelos! #eltchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:07:39 Very true! Plus, it would be super interesting to see this from the trainer's perspective #eltchat  https://t.co/KyZEAk68l4

aaronbroyer 2016-02-10T21:08:01 @ELTchat Wish I had had (and thought more deeply about) SLA fundamentals. #eltchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:08:11 @angelos_bollas @SueAnnan we can moderate ourselves looks like #eltchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:08:30 yep @Marisa_C  #ELTchat

angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:09:02 How would this make you a better trainee in your first training course? #eltchat  https://t.co/eujZUk6u28
vickyloras 2016-02-10T21:09:03 #eltchat I'd have liked more practice, less theory. Theory is good, but too much was not so good then : )
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:09:08 we did no classroom management at all!!! #eltchat supposed to acquire it through osmosis  https://t.co/U75tYZD3rY
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:09:58 More practice is truly an issue with many courses #eltchat  all preach but no practice what you preach https://t.co/AE7C62dOE8
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:10:03 but expected to be in a class immediately afterwards with no idea how to manage is not cool #ELTchat
theteacherjames 2016-02-10T21:10:11 @vickyloras Me too, but I'm not sure it was possible to fit it in anywhere! #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:10:14 @vickyloras You mean theory was not repated to practice, at all? #eltchat
vickyloras 2016-02-10T21:10:20 RT @Marisa_C: More practice is truly an issue with many courses #eltchat  all preach but no practice what you preach https://t.co/AE7C62dOE8
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:10:50 @vickyloras That's why I changed my 4-weeker to 5, to get more practice in #ELTchat
carlaraguseo 2016-02-10T21:10:58 Hello #ELTchat! I would have liked more refelction on the local teaching contexts. I graduated 14 yrs ago.
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:11:16 Agree - but most initial TT courses restricted to the practical aspects with less theory nowadays #eltchat  https://t.co/zKqeXJKCc0
vickyloras 2016-02-10T21:11:40 @angelos_bollas Most of the times it wasn't. Lots of dates, names, theories but no practice. How do I apply what I learn? #ELTChat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:12:01 @SueAnnan Isn;t that great? I will never forget my first ever observed TP #eltchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:12:02 Hi Carla!!! A warm welcome!!! less on global more on local issues right? #eltchat  https://t.co/oVTsb7q8IX
carlaraguseo 2016-02-10T21:12:13 #ELTchat More reflection, I mean. I feel things are starting to change.
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:12:35 I think time is the enemy on TT courses. No real time for reflection #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:12:48 @vickyloras True - not needed anyway #eltchat
aaronbroyer 2016-02-10T21:13:03 @angelos_bollas Strong SLA foundation allows trainees to evaluate the plethora of methods, techniques, EdTech, etc. they encounter. #eltchat
vickyloras 2016-02-10T21:13:08 Awesome! More practice!  #ELTChat  https://t.co/lHObX13lcV
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:13:31 @Marisa_C That's something missing from most initial training courses, indeed. #eltchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:13:34 @carlaraguseo it's true they are #eltchat
GlenysHanson 2016-02-10T21:13:40 No, Nurph tonight? #eltchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:14:02 @aaronbroyer What about what to do in the classroom? How would SLA help the complete novice T? #eltchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:14:39 @GlenysHanson https://t.co/hPMtG9uVCx #eltchat
theteacherjames 2016-02-10T21:14:47 @SueAnnan I think my CELTA was quite good at encouraging reflection. I certainly felt I learnt a lot about myself as a teacher. #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:14:51 RT @ELTchat Join me via @nurph using this link: https://t.co/xp3iuZlSdR a@GlenysHanson  #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:14:56 I think the logic of a quick 4-week fix course leaves little room for teachinng e.g. L2 qacuisition theories etc - all at Dip level #eltchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:15:21 @Marisa_C Sounds/Is reasonable, tho! #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2016-02-10T21:15:32 RT @SueAnnan: More classroom management techniques would be useful #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:15:46 I suppose reading can be done in own time pre/post -course if interested #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:15:47 Depends on the centre, I think.. #eltchat  https://t.co/zrVP1G52hv
tom_flaherty 2016-02-10T21:15:56 @Marisa_C @aaronbroyer #ELTChat shouldn't it be like that tho? We teach ele Ss practical lang before theory (grammar) - why not with new Ts?
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:15:57 But I believe it can be done in other ways - e.g. via flipped classroom activities  #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:16:05 #ELTchat - do not forget the hashtag, please! :-)  https://t.co/2CW9ybHw2x
theteacherjames 2016-02-10T21:16:06 @Marisa_C Agreed, there's only so much you can do & 4 weeks is all about being ready to survive the classroom. #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:16:29 @Marisa_C And a bit of self-studying? #eltchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:16:46 @tom_flaherty Tom you took the words right out of my mouth - yes, we teach beginners differently always - must keep in mind #ELTchat
GlenysHanson 2016-02-10T21:17:05 @angelos_bollas Not working for me.#eltchat
tammelaplatt 2016-02-10T21:17:10 #eltchat would've been nice to have closer look @ teaching English in non-lang school contexts e.g. #ESOL/FE, unis, charities
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:18:09 @tammelaplatt sort of broaden one's awareness of a No of contexts where English taught - yes - cos often our trainees need it  #ELTchat
aaronbroyer 2016-02-10T21:18:20 @angelos_bollas Classroom practices follow from SLA - e.g., understanding of roles of input/output implies certain practices. #eltchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:18:48 @GlenysHanson you sure you're using chrome? #ELTchat and copying the exact same url? https://t.co/hPMtG9uVCx
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:19:00 @tammelaplatt   We usually have a session with a guy from VSO to talk about working for a charity/ overseas #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:19:11 True - not many ESOL training opportunities #eltchat  https://t.co/lAkrvykPho
tammelaplatt 2016-02-10T21:19:34 @Marisa_C yes & esp how other contexts differ from traditional language school settings. We don't all end up in lang schools! #eltchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:19:42 @aaronbroyer Totally agree - not sure how this would fit a 4-week intensive initial training course #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2016-02-10T21:20:36 I'm all the training I had, no one ever mentioned enjoying what we do. #eltchat
tammelaplatt 2016-02-10T21:20:51 @SueAnnan that's great to hear. Lots of differences teaching in lang schools vs. charities in terms of style/students/resources. #eltchat
carlaraguseo 2016-02-10T21:21:07 Formal Ed in gral Although we do prepare 4 formal ed in Argentina the lang school seemed to be "the ideal" #ELTchat https://t.co/40s9BS2vnQ
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:21:21 Which is truly important - At the end of the day, we do this because we have fun, right! #eltchat  https://t.co/ssyscylcBv
MarjorieRosenbe 2016-02-10T21:21:27 @angelos_bollas @SueAnnan Sorry. #eltchat. Still agree with Sue
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:21:31 On my initial course I would have liked more positively delivered feedback after observations  #ELTchat
GlenysHanson 2016-02-10T21:21:34 @angelos_bollas Yep! I see the #ELTchat logo but no messages and can't send any.
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:21:46 @tammelaplatt Yes. I agree. and the charity video is scary- so you get people who really want to go there #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:21:49 and less lecturing - more p #ELTchat
tammelaplatt 2016-02-10T21:21:52 RT @angelos_bollas: True - not many ESOL training opportunities #eltchat  https://t.co/lAkrvykPho

SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:22:50 @Marisa_C  Such as? #ELTchat

aaronbroyer 2016-02-10T21:24:03 @angelos_bollas Yeah, that's tough, but solid understanding of the roles of input/output in acquisition is doable. #eltchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:24:28 @Marisa_C  good ideas. Self discovery is a great thing #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:25:53 @SueAnnan @Marisa_C Indeed, that's what I remember the most from my teacher training #eltchat and my TPs of course!

studiomentals 2016-02-10T21:27:47 Honestly, I've never been to any teacher training. Its either oudated to what's in blogs or hidden sale of coursebooks #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:27:54 @angelos_bollas thank you  #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:28:06 I think many trainees are just surviving, and don't really take in much on CPD @theteacherjames  #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:28:18 @studiomentals Not true! #eltchat
aaronbroyer 2016-02-10T21:28:31 @ELTchat Also wish I had been more thoroughly introduced to proficiency standards (CEFR, ACTFL, ILR). #eltchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:28:58 @SueAnnan @theteacherjames True - which is why we say that new teachers on initial courses can just take in so much  #ELTchat

SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:29:43 I do  #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:29:46 @aaronbroyer Shouldn't this be done in each business environment? Each school different #eltchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:31:17 What about things that you had more than needed? #eltchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:31:40 learners are usually low level, difficult to get  chance to work with advanced students, but job expects Nest to do Hlevel classes #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:32:34 @SueAnnan you mean advanced learners are hard to get for TP classes? #eltchat
aaronbroyer 2016-02-10T21:32:39 @angelos_bollas I believe the 3 I mentioned pervade many contexts and are in fact quite similar. Crucial for goal & assessment dev #eltchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:32:56 @angelos_bollas IN my context- yes #ELTchat
kendraELT 2016-02-10T21:33:23 I thought my initial certification training was very comprehensive, I appreciated (and still do) every aspect of it  #ELTchat
theteacherjames 2016-02-10T21:33:52 @kendraELT I don't have many complaints either, only if I nitpick :-) #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:33:57 I get lots of Delta applicants who have finished courses without ANY input on testing, phonology or approaches - just PPP- and PPP #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:34:16 Mine too! Could not have asked for more! (Thank you @CELT_Athens) #eltchat  https://t.co/ePP9dKB4mF
carlaraguseo 2016-02-10T21:34:17 Well, I @ phonology classes I had to learn RP. AmEng was forbidden! I hev now freed my Am accent! ;-) #ELTchat
GlenysHanson 2016-02-10T21:34:24 @kendraELT #ELTchat Where was it?
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:34:56 @carlaraguseo Not good #eltchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:34:58 @carlaraguseo true !!!! many tutors with rather limited phonology repertoire te he he  #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:35:18 My RSA cert was dull. Didn't touch phon until Dip #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:36:10 @SueAnnan mine neither - i think back to my first course with total wonder abt who let that trainer teach us  #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:36:28 @SueAnnan  hard to include a thorough phon section in an intensive initial training course, though,isn't it? #eltchat important but tough
carlaraguseo 2016-02-10T21:36:46 Does that happen anywhere else? that only RP is taught? #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:37:34 Its fun now, working with colleagues doing Dip- they had me for Phon on the Cert, so not starting from zero #ELTchat
GlenysHanson 2016-02-10T21:37:44 #ELTchat Mine was Direct Method at Berlitz about 1974. Hard but good training in teacher self-reliance.
kendraELT 2016-02-10T21:38:26 @SueAnnan I have been thinking about the Dip, do you think it is useful if I already have DELTA? #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:38:57 @angelos_bollas  I have a comprehensive pre course section on Phonology, then sessions incourse #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:39:24 @kendraELT they are the same qualification #ELTchat
racheldaw18 2016-02-10T21:39:29 Very chuffed to have been mentioned as an #eltpublishing anomaly in this great introspective post :) #eltchat #elt https://t.co/eii5mnZvPj
carlaraguseo 2016-02-10T21:39:48 At TT colleges in Arg we study for 4 years. We used to have 3 years of phonology. Now I think it's just two years #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:40:09 @racheldaw18  you must have the most recent experience. Do tell #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:40:12 @SueAnnan That's great #eltchat

racheldaw18 2016-02-10T21:41:50 @SueAnnan what would you like me to tell you about lovely Sue? Sorry if I've accidentally gatecrashed an #ELTchat - didn't realise!!!
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:42:22 @racheldaw18 @SueAnnan indeed you have - blown the chat apart actually!  #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:42:23 We are discussing things you would have liked more/ less of in your Cert training #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:42:23 @carlaraguseo Is there any classroom training, though? #eltchat
carlaraguseo 2016-02-10T21:42:48 Sure, Practicum ! #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:42:59 So, what would the ideal initial training course be about? #eltchat
erzenvineta 2016-02-10T21:43:00 RT @Marisa_C: I was just looking at the index of an advanced grammar book earlier - https://t.co/5WxYS4xpId #eltchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:43:12 How many hours of teaching practicum did you have and how many would you have liked? #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:43:33 I did some training in Malta- long time ago, where practice was eschewed for theory. It was a carcrash. Not the same today #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:43:56 I only had 30 mins of peer teaching and then one hour of teaching a class of adults - then they hire me - was a bit of a shocker! #ELTchat
racheldaw18 2016-02-10T21:44:37 Just caught up with the topic #ELTchat More: phonology training, beginners training. Less of: language teaching (degree in langs = not nec)
carlaraguseo 2016-02-10T21:44:47 @Marisa_C We hade several weeks in 3rd and 4th year  #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:44:49 I had 8 TPs, back then I wanted to have 0hrs, but I needed (and still do) 100+ #eltchat  https://t.co/WnbttzQZGG
aaronbroyer 2016-02-10T21:44:58 @Marisa_C Wow, talk about sink or swim! #eltchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:45:11 I had 4x20mins, 2x40 and 1hour. Our lessons are 90mins- no practice in real terms! #ELTchat
carlaraguseo 2016-02-10T21:46:23 @angelos_bollas Sure, practicum in 3rd and 4th year!#eltchat
Shaunwilden 2016-02-10T21:46:49 @SueAnnan yes but 90 min is not good for training, the more teaching practice you have the more chance of showing improvement  #eltchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:47:27 @carlaraguseo @angelos_bollas I think Carla is talking about a Uni degree course not a Certificate course like a  CELTA - more time #ELTchat
racheldaw18 2016-02-10T21:47:55 I also agree that the benefits of doing your #CELTA or similar in the place you want to teach should be highlighted more  #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:47:59 @aaronbroyer more sink less swim at first!!!  #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:48:01 Okay @Shaunwilden but at least one lesson of a similar length would have helped #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:48:05 @Marisa_C @carlaraguseo Not sure if we could call this teacher training course.. More like teacher education one #eltchat
amateurdancer 2016-02-10T21:48:05 RT @ELTchat: Looking back, what would you like to have had more/less of in your initial teacher training experiences? #ELTchat in 3 min
carlaraguseo 2016-02-10T21:48:09 @carlaraguseo @angelos_bollas  TT colleges are tertiary education here #ELTchat
carlaraguseo 2016-02-10T21:48:40 @Marisa_C sure, it's teacher education #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:49:12 @racheldaw18 How so? #eltchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:49:13 I did appreciate one think tho - my trainer (who I wouldn't hire to make coffee as a trainer) was a truly gifted and inspiring T #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:49:52 Cont.  So I watched a number of awesome lessons - so yes I think demo lessons with a great teacher are important  #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:50:08 Indeed important - Trainers should act as example teachers #eltchat  https://t.co/vKDDAgbsV9
carlaraguseo 2016-02-10T21:50:09 @Marisa_C are these teacher training courses mainly for native speakers? #ELTchat
kendraELT 2016-02-10T21:50:22 My trainer=magical. Sangeeta would always say "teaching is like choreography" with the most regal accent #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:50:41 RT @kendraELT My trainer=magical. Sangeeta would always say "teaching is like choreography" with the most regal accent > 'tis1 #ELTchat
racheldaw18 2016-02-10T21:51:24 @angelos_bollas I just feel I got more from the #CELTA & trainers in Berlin coz I then taught in Berlin-all their tidbits added up!#eltchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:51:47 Good teachers don't always make good trainers @Marisa_C  #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:52:27 RT @SueAnnan: Good teachers don't always make good trainers @Marisa_C  #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:52:40 But always helpful to have in training courses - Trainees need to have sb to look up to #ELTchat https://t.co/yFZBVxsREV
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:52:43 @SueAnnan you can say that again  #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:53:50 Would you have liked more trainer feedback or less? More from your fellow-trainees or less? #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:54:38 And would you have liked to have all your lessons recorded AND enough time to analyse them with tutor (NEVER enough! )  #ELTchat
kendraELT 2016-02-10T21:54:41 I would have liked less feedback, but I think we can all always use more #ELTchat
vickyloras 2016-02-10T21:54:53 More in both cases #ELTChat  https://t.co/j8hGyeOWNk
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:55:00 @kendraELT so you felt it was too much or too bitty?  #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:55:09 Last 5minutes. Can we interest anyone in writing the summary of this chat? #ELTchat
carlaraguseo 2016-02-10T21:55:23 I just got trainer feedback. Feedback from fellow traineed would have been useful! #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:55:27 @kendraELT or TOO detailed missing the bigger picture?  #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:55:51 @Marisa_C I think it's both for me. fellow trainees have a different eye from the one of the experienced tutor. Both needed, though #eltchat
theteacherjames 2016-02-10T21:56:12 @Marisa_C The feedback from both trainees and the tutors was the best thing about my CELTA. #ELTchat
alinaabrooks 2016-02-10T21:56:30 RT @sandymillin: Classroom Posters: Using PowerPoint to make classroom posters https://t.co/icWVwt5TUm via @tekhnologicblog #eltchat Simple…
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:56:32 All my lessons recorded - not sth I would enjoy but definitely sth from which I would benefit immensely. #eltchat  https://t.co/5FBmnWWNgQ
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:56:41 The bond that grows from trainees sharing feedback is special #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:57:16 Summary writer needed- please? #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-02-10T21:57:18 @SueAnnan Agree, totally agree! #eltchat

Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:57:31 I think I would have like more variety in how we were given feedback (bar the tutor barking at me - tie him to his chair)  #ELTchat

Marisa_C 2016-02-10T21:58:37 @carlaraguseo no not just for natives - we have lots of Ts of varied nationalities #eltchat
SueAnnan 2016-02-10T21:59:38 Coming to the end of this chat. Some good points to chew over before the next TT course ;-) #ELTchat

Marisa_C 2016-02-10T22:00:13 so, it's time to call this an #ELTchat - angel who will write up this summary? - we can then distribute to many TT centres :-D #ELTchat
GlenysHanson 2016-02-10T22:00:23 #ELTchat Thanks to all you well trained teachers with what I thought was an unpromising subject.
carlaraguseo 2016-02-10T22:00:47 Thanks everyone!  #ELTchat

Marisa_C 2016-02-10T22:01:41 I was reluctant to say more about MY first course it was sooooo bad.  #ELTchat
