SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:02:55 2016-12-14T19:02:55 @fionaljp Hi Fiona. Great to have you with us #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:03:17 2016-12-14T21:03:17 @fionaljp Is this a train I know? :-P #ELTchat
BretMistergesl 2016-12-14T19:03:45 2016-12-14T19:03:45 #eltchat Been a while since I've attended an ELT but I'm here :)
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:04:00 2016-12-14T19:04:00 @angelos_bollas @fionaljp  Well we are discussing 'Train' ing #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:04:09 2016-12-14T21:04:09 @BretMistergesl Welcome :) #ELTchat
khanshahana30 2016-12-14T19:04:29 2016-12-14T19:04:29 #eltchat Hello everyone.
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:04:52 2016-12-14T21:04:52 @khanshahana30 Hello - Welcome #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:05:43 2016-12-14T19:05:43 Is enough attention paid to ELF for example? Our Dip does, but not the Cert unless you sacrifice something else #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-12-14T19:05:49 2016-12-14T21:05:49 So what were you thinking when you asked the question, @SueAnnan ? Can you elaborate a little? #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:06:51 2016-12-14T19:06:51 I look at the list of stuff we are supposed to cover, and sometimes think that other stuff would be more useful #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:07:49 2016-12-14T21:07:49 @SueAnnan I think there is but not as explicitly as in Dip level courses. e.g. when training on phonology or error correction #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-12-14T19:07:57 2016-12-14T21:07:57 @SueAnnan I think you are right but just like we teach some basic stuff to beginners, a TEFL course is no different #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:08:07 2016-12-14T19:08:07 when you do an online Cert, can you cover more than when f2f? #ELTchat
teachingright 2016-12-14T19:08:37 2016-12-14T19:08:37 Good evening doctor @alseghayer why don't you share in the #ELTchat now . I'm sure you'll provide us with precious information:)
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:08:51 2016-12-14T21:08:51 I think Cert level courses should focus more on ICT. #ELTchat https://t.co/evKd7VSlmf
Marisa_C 2016-12-14T19:08:51 2016-12-14T21:08:51 @SueAnnan So more content can be explored on the Dip level sure - but what course EVER covers everything? #ELTchat
GlenysHanson 2016-12-14T19:09:01 2016-12-14T20:09:01 Hi everybody. #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:09:20 2016-12-14T21:09:20 @GlenysHanson Hello Glenys :) #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:09:52 2016-12-14T19:09:52 @angelos_bollas I think that if you use it as standard you can do some of the ICT like that #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:10:28 2016-12-14T21:10:28 I certainly cover more when I teach learners online than when I teach them f2f so... possibly the same with trainin… https://t.co/ozKuw2T06I
fionaljp 2016-12-14T19:10:31 2016-12-14T19:10:31 Problem with wifi connection :-( #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:10:44 2016-12-14T19:10:44 @Marisa_C do you have much autonomy over what is covered? #ELTchat @Marisa_C
TeresaBestwick 2016-12-14T19:11:35 2016-12-14T20:11:35 Evening everyone :) #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:11:46 2016-12-14T21:11:46 @TeresaBestwick Hi Teresa #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:11:50 2016-12-14T19:11:50 @TeresaBestwick Evening. NIce to see you #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-12-14T19:11:55 2016-12-14T21:11:55 @SueAnnan A syllabus is a syllabus and how a centre implements the objectives may vary -I do feel constricted sometimes on the what #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:12:27 2016-12-14T19:12:27 @Marisa_C what would you leave out? #ELTchat
TeresaBestwick 2016-12-14T19:12:37 2016-12-14T20:12:37 @SueAnnan Possibly, but still a danger of overwhelming trainees #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:13:22 2016-12-14T19:13:22 @TeresaBestwick perhaps online they can go back over the material more #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-12-14T19:14:34 2016-12-14T21:14:34 @SueAnnan I don't have issues with leaving stuff out - but I would ask u again - what made u ask the question #eltchat
TeresaBestwick 2016-12-14T19:14:49 2016-12-14T20:14:49 @SueAnnan Very true #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:15:06 2016-12-14T21:15:06 Trainees could also have a/some say re this - there could be a list with optional sessions from which they could ch… https://t.co/eSYkkz38Io
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:15:13 2016-12-14T19:15:13 @Marisa_C Just a bit of disillusionment while planning the next course. #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-12-14T19:15:32 2016-12-14T21:15:32 I think online content is great but nothing can replace problem solving, design and trialling #eltchat more time on this needed
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:16:32 2016-12-14T19:16:32 @Marisa_C Is 6 hours of teaching really sufficient? #ELTchat It's hard to get in more in a short course but...
TeresaBestwick 2016-12-14T19:16:59 2016-12-14T20:16:59 @angelos_bollas Some trainees may think they don't "need" certain sessions. Core + a few optional? #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:17:37 2016-12-14T21:17:37 @SueAnnan Has anything change re the participants on these course over the years? Coz this would suggest a need for change for eg #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:17:39 2016-12-14T19:17:39 @TeresaBestwick @angelos_bollas  How would they prove they know it though? #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-12-14T19:18:07 2016-12-14T21:18:07 @SueAnnan Not really - but unless  you are thinking of a one or two year uni course of about 400 hrs best change the subject #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:18:38 2016-12-14T21:18:38 @SueAnnan @TeresaBestwick I didn't mean give them complete control. Some optional sessions to choose from. 1/2 #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:18:49 2016-12-14T19:18:49 @angelos_bollas actually yes. More people of a certain age, mixed with the younger models. Plus more NNests in my case #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-12-14T19:19:14 2016-12-14T21:19:14 The council of Europe specifies at least 400 hours of training to gain basic expertise in one's field #eltchat some of those can be study
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:19:37 2016-12-14T21:19:37 @SueAnnan @TeresaBestwick What if they will never teach YLs? or if in their context there is no chance for One-to-one teaching #ELTchat 2/2
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:20:05 2016-12-14T19:20:05 @Marisa_C I suppose DL material could do some of that. Maybe blended pre-course? #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:20:42 2016-12-14T21:20:42 @Marisa_C Do they specify how much should be hands-on teaching and how much should be studying, participating in seminars, etc? #ELTchat
TeresaBestwick 2016-12-14T19:21:11 2016-12-14T20:21:11 @angelos_bollas @SueAnnan True - but good to raise awareness of what ELT might involve though #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-12-14T19:21:25 2016-12-14T21:21:25 @SueAnnan Yes, or end of course work #eltchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:21:35 2016-12-14T21:21:35 I think some post-course work would be nice. Sth like consolidation tasks or reflection 6 months after the end of t… https://t.co/LO2g4QKXXS
Marisa_C 2016-12-14T19:22:30 2016-12-14T21:22:30 @angelos_bollas not very clear on % no #eltchat but when this written all was f2f #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:22:43 2016-12-14T19:22:43 @angelos_bollas I love the idea. My guys head off as soon as they are finished and it is hard to know how they are doing. but #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:23:39 2016-12-14T19:23:39 @angelos_bollas in a new job they have so much stress it would get forgotten I think #ELTchat
TeresaBestwick 2016-12-14T19:23:40 2016-12-14T20:23:40 Being a party pooper in today's #ELTchat - I feel as though I'm pointing out negs of other people's comments...sorry!
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:23:45 2016-12-14T21:23:45 @SueAnnan I feel there is no structured  in-between stage. Ppl go from Cert-level to Dip-level #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:24:15 2016-12-14T19:24:15 @TeresaBestwick No it's great to have your comments. Makes everyone think #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:24:25 2016-12-14T21:24:25 @SueAnnan What if it was mandatory? Sth like a weekend retreat #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:24:48 2016-12-14T19:24:48 @angelos_bollas cost? #ELTchat
GlenysHanson 2016-12-14T19:24:58 2016-12-14T20:24:58 @Marisa_C I wonder what research the Council of Europe's figure of 400 h of training nec to gain basic expertise is founded on. #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:25:19 2016-12-14T21:25:19 @SueAnnan you got me there! #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:25:38 2016-12-14T19:25:38 @GlenysHanson @Marisa_C Good question #ELTchat
khanshahana30 2016-12-14T19:25:55 2016-12-14T19:25:55 #eltchat some time trainers and trainees both struggle for certain standards.
teachingright 2016-12-14T19:26:00 2016-12-14T19:26:00 when I think of revolutionized training I think of using technology to train teachers! #ELTchat
GemmaELT 2016-12-14T19:26:05 2016-12-14T20:26:05 #eltchat https://t.co/qALgQzC7RY
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:26:18 2016-12-14T21:26:18 @khanshahana30 how do you mean this? #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:26:31 2016-12-14T19:26:31 Trinity state that 130 hours is timetabled per trainee and the rest minimum 70 hours is self study #ELTchat
teachingright 2016-12-14T19:26:44 2016-12-14T19:26:44 #ELTchat  teachers may spend time in a virtual classroom to get used of the environment! Just an idea.:-)
GemmaELT 2016-12-14T19:27:00 2016-12-14T20:27:00 @angelos_bollas @SueAnnan @TeresaBestwick 2/2 w/only mini-session on YLS so think it's good 2 do a bit of everything  #eltchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:28:05 2016-12-14T19:28:05 @GemmaELT @angelos_bollas @TeresaBestwick I agree. We always do YLs because the ones who stay work in our summer school. #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:28:25 2016-12-14T21:28:25 Similar with Cambridge: 120 contact hours plus minimum of 80 hours for self study #ELTchat https://t.co/BVePbwvPMc
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:29:10 2016-12-14T19:29:10 @angelos_bollas Not much difference, slightly more contact time at our end #ELTchat
GlenysHanson 2016-12-14T19:29:41 2016-12-14T20:29:41 @angelos_bollas Who decides the number of hours? On what basis? #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:30:10 2016-12-14T21:30:10 @SueAnnan When I first read it (before I sign up to get trained) I thought it was a lot but it isn't; it's packed! #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:30:35 2016-12-14T19:30:35 @GlenysHanson @angelos_bollas Trinity or Cambridge decide the hours. We can divi them up as we need to #ELTChat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:31:13 2016-12-14T19:31:13 @angelos_bollas I know. It amazes me that anyone is still standing at the end #ELTchat
GlenysHanson 2016-12-14T19:31:45 2016-12-14T20:31:45 @SueAnnan @angelos_bollas You mean the uni decides for admin reasons? Nothing to do with what is effective. #ELTchat
TeresaBestwick 2016-12-14T19:32:21 2016-12-14T20:32:21 @SueAnnan @angelos_bollas We do a four-day/five-week course to take *some* of the pressure off #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:32:32 2016-12-14T21:32:32 @SueAnnan now it amazed me how we are still standing at the end.Esp when 2 days after the end of one,we have a new course coming up #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:33:41 2016-12-14T21:33:41 @GlenysHanson @SueAnnan I think this is the minimum requirement for Level 5 courses. As you move up, more hours are needed #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:34:17 2016-12-14T19:34:17 @GlenysHanson Pass! #ELTchat I added a week to my course to get more in, but trainees just look slightly less shell shocked #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:34:18 2016-12-14T21:34:18 @TeresaBestwick @SueAnnan As a learner, I do better in intensive courses. The more intensive, the better for me #ELTchat
GlenysHanson 2016-12-14T19:35:09 2016-12-14T20:35:09 @SueAnnan @angelos_bollas A course cn have a lot of content and Ss work really hard, but does it make them effective teachers? #ELTchat
TeresaBestwick 2016-12-14T19:35:20 2016-12-14T20:35:20 @angelos_bollas I definitely do better f2f...not keen on online learning, moodles or smaller courses #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:35:28 2016-12-14T19:35:28 @TeresaBestwick @angelos_bollas I do a five day, five week, plus evenings, weekends etc.. #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:36:21 2016-12-14T21:36:21 So, have trainees/the market 'complained' about the content of the training courses? Why do we need to change them? #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:36:43 2016-12-14T19:36:43 @GlenysHanson @angelos_bollas Not always. But it is an initial qual so they need hand holding in first job #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:37:09 2016-12-14T21:37:09 @GlenysHanson @SueAnnan well,we give them the tools to become effective. Whether they will make use of them or not is another story #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:37:11 2016-12-14T19:37:11 @angelos_bollas The market does regularly #ELTchat
GlenysHanson 2016-12-14T19:37:44 2016-12-14T20:37:44 @angelos_bollas @SueAnnan What are the tools? #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:37:56 2016-12-14T21:37:56 @SueAnnan In what ways? #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:38:10 2016-12-14T19:38:10 @angelos_bollas Trainees don't as they don't really know any different #ELTchat Unless course is badly run!
Marisa_C 2016-12-14T19:38:11 2016-12-14T21:38:11 @GlenysHanson I think (not sure) based on avrge of study hrs for diff professions #eltchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:38:46 2016-12-14T21:38:46 @GlenysHanson @SueAnnan an initial qualification can give one some knowledge of the subject matter and some skills development #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:39:22 2016-12-14T21:39:22 @SueAnnan I see more and more experienced teachers signing up for cert-level courses #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:39:30 2016-12-14T19:39:30 @angelos_bollas Lots of grumpiness from places where teachers have to train for much longer at Uni etc #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:40:00 2016-12-14T19:40:00 @angelos_bollas Why? does it open more doors perhaps? #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:40:30 2016-12-14T21:40:30 @SueAnnan But does this come from the market or from uni graduates? #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:40:55 2016-12-14T21:40:55 @SueAnnan Certainly more international doors! #ELTchat
TeresaBestwick 2016-12-14T19:41:28 2016-12-14T20:41:28 @SueAnnan @angelos_bollas Also external pressures on schools to have qual Ts (as opposed to experienced) - need that bit of paper! #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:41:44 2016-12-14T19:41:44 @angelos_bollas True. It's the tick box thing #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-12-14T19:42:05 2016-12-14T21:42:05 So, apart from tech (already suggested) what would revolutionize training? #eltchat Perhaps more training of the trainers?
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:42:31 2016-12-14T19:42:31 @Marisa_C absolutely. I've heard of some dire courses #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-12-14T19:43:07 2016-12-14T21:43:07 And I have seen trainers get really complacent and factory like #eltchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:43:08 2016-12-14T19:43:08 More understanding of the changing place of English in the world too #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:43:51 2016-12-14T21:43:51 @Marisa_C Yes!and more communication among trainers.Teachers are doing a great job being networked and all;trainers not so much IMO #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:44:02 2016-12-14T19:44:02 @Marisa_C I think they don't get a shake up often enough. That's what I was thinking about really #ELTchat
TeresaBestwick 2016-12-14T19:44:59 2016-12-14T20:44:59 Don't forget there's the new @AchatCelt starting in January #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-12-14T19:45:02 2016-12-14T21:45:02 Trainers are pretty bad at this - most (outside #ELTchat circle) don't share much of anything - happy to take, neve… https://t.co/JOJi2kmm89
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:45:04 2016-12-14T19:45:04 @angelos_bollas @Marisa_C Do you have a group for Cambridge trainers to meet up? #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:46:05 2016-12-14T19:46:05 @Marisa_C That's a sad indictment of our fellow trainers, #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:46:13 2016-12-14T21:46:13 @SueAnnan @Marisa_C Yes,but not much sharing there. #ELTchat As if what we do is a big secret and if they share, we will take their business
Marisa_C 2016-12-14T19:46:16 2016-12-14T21:46:16 @SueAnnan @angelos_bollas We really only started this year - in Istanbul - next yeat at Sheffield Uni but once a year only really #ELTchat
GlenysHanson 2016-12-14T19:46:26 2016-12-14T20:46:26 @SueAnnan @angelos_bollas Get idea tht length of course based on uni norms,not on evidence. I'm critical cos I'd no formal training #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:47:10 2016-12-14T21:47:10 @SueAnnan @Marisa_C Was talking abt online groups; not the f2f Cambridge meet-up #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:47:26 2016-12-14T19:47:26 @Marisa_C @angelos_bollas We now have a new online forum, but we used to meet up once a year #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-12-14T19:47:41 2016-12-14T21:47:41 @GlenysHanson most of what happens in ELT is hit or myth so what else is new #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:48:06 2016-12-14T19:48:06 @Marisa_C @GlenysHanson  or fads and fashions #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:48:22 2016-12-14T21:48:22 @SueAnnan @Marisa_C Meetings are great - It's always nice to see what others do and what you can do to get better #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:48:35 2016-12-14T19:48:35 I'm happy to write the summary for this one #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2016-12-14T19:49:11 2016-12-14T21:49:11 @angelos_bollas @SueAnnan sure but think that we need to make them more creative and get a bit more adventurous #eltchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:49:33 2016-12-14T19:49:33 @angelos_bollas @Marisa_C sharing is such a better idea than the idea of hoarding your stuff #ELTchat
GlenysHanson 2016-12-14T19:50:12 2016-12-14T20:50:12 @Marisa_C LOL! I'm heartened that people like the group here are trying to make change. #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:50:16 2016-12-14T19:50:16 @angelos_bollas @Marisa_C  And thank the LOrd for #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:50:36 2016-12-14T21:50:36 @Marisa_C @SueAnnan Yes and yes! #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:50:58 2016-12-14T19:50:58 @GlenysHanson @Marisa_C People like yourselves with vast experience are integral to change #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:52:45 2016-12-14T19:52:45 I think learner motivation needs to be discussed too #ELTchat
GlenysHanson 2016-12-14T19:54:06 2016-12-14T20:54:06 @SueAnnan You mean the teacher trainees motivation for becoming teachers? #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:54:20 2016-12-14T19:54:20 Does Cambridge do anything on SPNeeds students? #ELTchat. I'd like to add that in somewhere if poss
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:54:41 2016-12-14T21:54:41 @SueAnnan We have a session on L motivation and L profiling - I am not sure if we should do more at Cert level #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:54:58 2016-12-14T19:54:58 @GlenysHanson No. I meant an understanding of the learners' motivation. Sorry I wasn't clear #ELTchat
bar_zie 2016-12-14T19:55:10 2016-12-14T19:55:10 RT @SueAnnan: Does Cambridge do anything on SPNeeds students? #ELTchat. I'd like to add that in somewhere if poss
GlenysHanson 2016-12-14T19:56:13 2016-12-14T20:56:13 @SueAnnan No worries, both are very important for trainers to take into account IMO. #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:56:24 2016-12-14T19:56:24 @angelos_bollas our guys each write a profile of one  student, but they don't do much on motivation #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:56:54 2016-12-14T19:56:54 @GlenysHanson I try to find out trainees motivation at interview #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:57:47 2016-12-14T21:57:47 @SueAnnan With C, they have to have a input session on that and an assignment in which they focus on a L and find materials  1/2 #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:58:05 2016-12-14T21:58:05 @SueAnnan based on the L's needs, interests, and motivation #ELTchat 2/2
GlenysHanson 2016-12-14T19:58:17 2016-12-14T20:58:17 @SueAnnan How does your knowledge of trainees' motivation influence the course you propose? #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-14T19:58:23 2016-12-14T21:58:23 @GlenysHanson @SueAnnan Agree! #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:58:47 2016-12-14T19:58:47 My goodness. This hour has flown by. Don't forget that we will be moving into slow burn mode soon #ELTchat

SueAnnan 2016-12-14T19:59:26 2016-12-14T19:59:26 @GlenysHanson It changes the delivery of some of my sessions, #ELTchat
sandymillin 2016-12-14T21:04:53 2016-12-15T00:04:53 @angelos_bollas @SueAnnan Looks like I missed a fascinating #eltchat tonight. Looking forward to the summary
deh_meisam 2016-12-14T21:04:55 2016-12-14T12:04:55 I think one way to revolutionize training is to move toward student-based classes rather than traditional teacher-based classes! #ELTchat
sandymillin 2016-12-14T21:14:01 2016-12-15T00:14:01 @angelos_bollas @SueAnnan I definitely agree that post-course support needed. One of benefits of our school is necsry help we offer #eltchat
SueAnnan 2016-12-14T21:17:40 2016-12-14T21:17:40 @sandymillin  yes. We do the same with our March course trainees. They work for us for the summer so we can mentor them #ELTchat
tesolmatthew 2016-12-14T21:31:06 2016-12-14T21:31:06 @sandymillin @angelos_bollas @SueAnnan me tooo! #ELTchat was having coffee w/ Ss, which was fantabulous. prolly best reason to miss eh ;)
tesolmatthew 2016-12-14T21:37:43 2016-12-14T21:37:43 perhaps @AnthonyTeacher @Ashowski and/or @AnthonyGaughan have some thoughts...#theELTanthonyMASSIVE #ELTchat :D
askelitetext 2016-12-14T22:04:46 2016-12-14T22:04:46 RT @Marisa_C: So, apart from tech (already suggested) what would revolutionize training? #eltchat Perhaps more training of the trainers?
SarhandiSuhail 2016-12-14T22:09:12 2016-12-15T01:09:12 @Marisa_C #ELTCHAT I guess contextualised training for trainers would revolutionise....
SarhandiSuhail 2016-12-14T22:10:23 2016-12-15T01:10:23 @SueAnnan #ELTCHAT when it comes to motivation why do we label SS only, TS need to be motivated.
tesolmatthew 2016-12-14T23:48:00 2016-12-14T23:48:00 #ELTchat in regards to feedback on practice teaching in TT, saw this yesterday https://t.co/L7svO6zd8l #manysandwichesELT #feedbackforlunch

AbduhMona 2016-12-15T03:01:40 2016-12-15T03:01:40 RT @teachingright: #ELTchat  teachers may spend time in a virtual classroom to get used of the environment! Just an idea.:-)
Ashowski 2016-12-15T03:43:19 2016-12-15T03:43:19 @tesolmatthew @AnthonyTeacher @AnthonyGaughan I think the possible is teaching more 'advanced' things than traditionally expected #eltchat
wanderingELT 2016-12-15T07:06:02 2016-12-15T08:06:02 Great #ELTchat topic. I'm not a trainer, so I speak as trainee when I say: more real-life, down-to-earth ideas and… https://t.co/2KPbgZ6vso

tesolmatthew 2016-12-15T07:31:58 2016-12-15T07:31:58 Thnx @wanderingELT! I think trainee's voice is the most crucial here. Wonder if you could say evn more on that if poss :) #ELTchat
fionaljp 2016-12-15T08:16:01 2016-12-15T08:16:01 @tesolmatthew @RichardMChinn Thanks for this #ELTchat - started curating here to reflect on training and have added: https://t.co/hTa31x2yFl

wanderingELT 2016-12-15T09:00:17 2016-12-15T10:00:17 #ELTchat I agree that guidance after training is very important. CDP maybe more useful than one-off course as set in real teaching context
Sarah_TTrainer 2016-12-15T10:18:45 2016-12-15T10:18:45 @wanderingELT @tesolmatthew reminds me of 'minimax' inset colleagues gave. Mini changes to mats but max effect. #Eltchat
wanderingELT 2016-12-15T10:36:55 2016-12-15T11:36:55 @Sarah_TTrainer that's very interesting! Can you give examples? #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-15T11:13:10 2016-12-15T13:13:10 @sandymillin @SueAnnan That's good. I wish all schools did that #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2016-12-15T11:22:29 2016-12-15T13:22:29 @tesolmatthew As a trainee, I really liked 4 and then 3... As a trainer, I think 5 is the 'best' one to go with, isn't it? #ELTchat
KateLloyd05 2016-12-16T05:30:24 2016-12-16T12:30:24 @angelos_bollas @SueAnnan think it's trend to start out with online cert and then CELTA or trinity up later #Eltchat
KateLloyd05 2016-12-16T05:31:46 2016-12-16T12:31:46 @angelos_bollas @SueAnnan LSE in Ukraine have a structured CELTA to delta course of teaching training to help this #ELTchat
