SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:04:25 Observations is a good topic #ELTchat

angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:05:07 @SueAnnan Not new to #ELTchat though.. We've done 4 chats on same topic
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:05:14 @fionaljp I miss it soooo much #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-02-15T19:05:18 @SueAnnan #eltchat - terrible connectivity in hotels in Tehran - we both got desperate in the end - withdrawal symptoms etc!!! #ELTchat

angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:05:59 @Marisa_C @SueAnnan I got desperate from the very beginning re wifi etc. #ELTchat What is it called? FOBO?
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:06:08 @fionaljp I wish.... #ELTchat

ambartosik 2017-02-15T19:08:53 I have time to join  #ELTchat today. Anna here from Canada. Observations is the topic?
Marisa_C 2017-02-15T19:09:04 @SueAnnan wasn't last time :-( #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:09:54 @Marisa_C We've mainly chatted about observation, stress, benefits. What could the angle be for tonight? #ELTchat Benefits for observer?
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:10:00 @ambartosik Hi Anna #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:10:08 @Marisa_C was thinking we ought to group the chats by topic on the wiki. Easier to find and come up with something new? #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:10:27 @Marisa_C It was ok last month - not sure how it will be with 2500+ delegates though #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-02-15T19:10:37 @ambartosik hey Anna - welcome - yes it is #eltchat and how to do on one's own as well #eltchat
fionaljp 2017-02-15T19:10:56 @SueAnnan @Marisa_C How about observing from the point of view of the learner #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-02-15T19:11:17 interestingly @johnhugheselt is doing a survey on same topic #ELTchat
GlenysHanson 2017-02-15T19:11:37 #ELTchat No CELTAs & DELTAs when I started off so relied on observing other teachers.
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:12:09 @GlenysHanson Was this institutionally mandatory or your own initiative? #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:12:18 personally I have nothing against being observed- but it depends on the purpose #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-02-15T19:12:23 Yes - e.g. how many times each student talked or categories of student talk #ELTchat https://t.co/KevvVfnQlq
GlenysHanson 2017-02-15T19:13:01 @angelos_bollas My initiative. #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:13:04 @SueAnnan I am being observed every summer at the Uni for BALEAP accreditation and @CELT_Athens when I teach demo lessons #ELTchat
ambartosik 2017-02-15T19:13:04 I wish we would do this regularly as seasoned teachers #ELTchat https://t.co/xD4a9Q9B9w
olyaelt 2017-02-15T19:13:07 Options for teachers who are self-employed and don't work in a team? #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-02-15T19:13:21 I think there is a lot of stuff (IRF) done on teacher talk but less on student talk #ELTchat
fionaljp 2017-02-15T19:13:37 @Marisa_C Yes. How engaged they all were #ELTchat Errors unspotted
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:13:49 @GlenysHanson Great one! And well done to colleagues that let you observe them - not all of them open #ELTchat
ambartosik 2017-02-15T19:14:05 I've had tally sheets for this kind of observation before - not taxing  but v revealing #ELTchat https://t.co/IGcM3K3Zfw
Marisa_C 2017-02-15T19:14:08 @olyaelt Transcribe a random 5 or 10 minutes and subject to classroom discourse analysis #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:14:10 That's a good point :) #ELTchat https://t.co/jRbuigos8b
olyaelt 2017-02-15T19:14:33 I recorded my lnrs' pairwork as part of Delta M2 experimental practice and was shocked. Nothing I'd assumed would happen happened. #ELTchat

SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:15:25 @olyaelt My Ls pairwork today was conducted in French! the feedback was done in English though #ELTchat
GlenysHanson 2017-02-15T19:15:27 @angelos_bollas I think I'd still observe more experienced teachers to improve my know-how. #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:16:02 @GlenysHanson @angelos_bollasor just to get ideas to try something different? #ELTchat
fionaljp 2017-02-15T19:16:16 @olyaelt Interested in recording observation - never done it. Maybe self observation too #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-02-15T19:16:59 Or livestreaming it - just let in very few ppl on your livestrean channel #ELTchat https://t.co/wrFf1XuGUa

SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:18:10 @GlenysHanson @angelos_bollas Same here. There are good reasons which benefit everyone. #ELTchat
fionaljp 2017-02-15T19:18:32 @GlenysHanson @angelos_bollas Maybe it’s about deciding to accept that uncomfortable feeling and doing it anyway? #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:18:37 @GlenysHanson I get so much from it #eltchat both when I observe and when I am observed
Marisa_C 2017-02-15T19:18:54 I think videotaped and demo lessons go a long way towards getting teachers to polish their classroom skills to a higher level #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:19:10 @angelos_bollas @GlenysHanson I think it depends on the feedback- and what you do with it #ELTchat
fionaljp 2017-02-15T19:19:24 @GlenysHanson @angelos_bollas …or not #ELTchat - it can be a choice.
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:20:03 @GlenysHanson I like observing Ts outside the CELTA/Delta scheme. I often get a different perspective #eltchat
fionaljp 2017-02-15T19:20:36 @Marisa_C Yes, I’d like to try this #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:20:58 @fionaljp @GlenysHanson or accept that we do not teach perfect lessons and live with that #eltchat

GlenysHanson 2017-02-15T19:21:19 @fionaljp @olyaelt Used to make me nervous to be filmed but it's very useful to observe a recording of my own or other classes. #ELTchat
teachingright 2017-02-15T19:21:23 Interesting topic !   Actually my job as an educational supervisor is to observe teachers & evalute their teaching performance :-) #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:21:43 @SueAnnan @GlenysHanson absolutely! #eltchat
fionaljp 2017-02-15T19:21:46 @angelos_bollas @GlenysHanson Nice one! #ELTchat
olyaelt 2017-02-15T19:21:54 I think I prefer recorded obs at the moment. Can stop the rec to write more detailed notes, T could watch and reflect. #ELTchat @fionaljp
teachingright 2017-02-15T19:22:38 Some teachers don't like to be observed by other teachers !#ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:22:51 Observing trainees can be nervewracking when it goes pearshaped  #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:23:03 I think recording one's lessons is the most powerful tool for reflection and improvement #eltchat https://t.co/pPYO5RlT6u
GlenysHanson 2017-02-15T19:23:29 @SueAnnan @angelos_bollas Could you say a bit more, Sue. #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-02-15T19:23:32 Padlet with previous #eltchat s on subject of observation https://t.co/QkbbDxkbBM @imadruid (Diarmuid Fogarty) wrote one
olyaelt 2017-02-15T19:23:47 In what way are the two different in your experience? #ELTchat @angelos_bollas @GlenysHanson
fionaljp 2017-02-15T19:24:17 @angelos_bollas What about the tech? Do you use an iPad and upload to YouTube? How do you do it #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-02-15T19:24:28 It's terrible - you cannot do anything but cringe #eltchat https://t.co/a7GDoyJqJ8
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:24:39 @teachingright I know that this is sth thay must be done (or not) but I don't like the idea that lessons are being evaluated. #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:25:26 @SueAnnan so true! It can also be major learning experience for us, as well! #eltchat
GlenysHanson 2017-02-15T19:25:30 @SueAnnan @angelos_bollas Why do you write "just"? New ideas are important, aren't they? #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:25:41 @GlenysHanson @angelos_bollas If you observe as a team- to help improve teaching, then it's good. If you are imposing your ideas- #ELTChat 1
teachingright 2017-02-15T19:26:34 Observing teachers'  practices in class is good for  their professional growth . #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:26:38 @olyaelt @GlenysHanson when demoing a lesson, one has to do certain things for trainees to observe. #eltchat
SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:26:50 @GlenysHanson @angelos_bollas and  it gets written up for the file- it feels more menacing #ELTchat
fionaljp 2017-02-15T19:26:52 @olyaelt @angelos_bollas Interesting - like the sound of YouTube unlisted #ELTchat
ambartosik 2017-02-15T19:26:54 Apologies. I have to step away from the chat. Enjoyed joining in, if only for a short while  #ELTchat
olyaelt 2017-02-15T19:27:08 YouTube unlisted or Google drive. Used iPad, company cameras, laptop webcams. Good mic essential, we test in advance. @fionaljp #ELTchat
teachingright 2017-02-15T19:28:18 @angelos_bollas  in government schools in my country, lessons are evaluated! #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:28:22 @fionaljp we used to do this with livestream amd then youtube inlisted. @Marisa_C knows best #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:28:33 @GlenysHanson @angelos_bollas I meant 'simply' to #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:29:15 @teachingright @angelos_bollas How can you evaluate another teacher's teaching. To what set of criteria? #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:29:29 @teachingright I know. I go through this every year. I still don't like it though #eltchat
olyaelt 2017-02-15T19:30:01 Slightly off topic: does anyone know any lesson recordings on YouTube to watch? #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:30:13 @SueAnnan @GlenysHanson the BALEAP ones are poorly written. #eltchat
GlenysHanson 2017-02-15T19:30:13 @Marisa_C yes, can be nervewracking but you can learn not to cringe. There's always something positive to learn. #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-02-15T19:30:35 @angelos_bollas yes - unlisted videos or private with a password are easy to do - but take time to upload - looking for alternative #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:30:46 @angelos_bollas @GlenysHanson Which doesn't make it any better ! #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-02-15T19:31:10 @angelos_bollas livestream is great if you have a good fast connection and no uploading needed #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-02-15T19:32:41 @GlenysHanson fully cringeworthy is rare - always sth positive - but bad  when grade makes or breaks a candidate's overall mark #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:34:03 @SueAnnan @GlenysHanson it's much worse. And the observers are not trained AT ALL. Just colleagues randomly selected. #eltchat

olyaelt 2017-02-15T19:34:54 With recorded observations the school might also start collecting short snippets of successful activities Ts are happy to share #ELTchat
ProjectIndus 2017-02-15T19:35:07 We're looking for schools and teachers for a free intercultural project sharing pilot! https://t.co/MYlZSGIBDZ #100SchoolsForChange #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:35:09 We used to do pair obs. You could ask them to concentrate on smth which you needed help with. Useful #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-02-15T19:35:48 if you have an observation checklist you think you can share, please upload to the padlet https://t.co/KYl4vqoCGj #ELTchat
GlenysHanson 2017-02-15T19:36:01 @Marisa_C Wasn't thinking of grades. I've learnt more from observing and discussing"bad" lessons than "good" ones. #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:36:40 @GlenysHanson @Marisa_C There's usually more to get out of them, for sure #ELTchat
olyaelt 2017-02-15T19:36:43 I watched a really useful talk on peer obs/coaching at IATEFL 2015 by @ditaphillips & @elawassell @SueAnnan https://t.co/7rxsUCRY8A #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:37:02 @SueAnnan focusing on one aspect is great help actually #eltchat
fionaljp 2017-02-15T19:37:22 Have to go unfortunately. Thanks #ELTchat - very interesting
SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:37:24 @olyaelt @ditaphillips @elawassell Yes. I saw that one too #ELTChat. Ela was heavily preg. at the time :-)
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:37:55 @olyaelt sometimes Ts don't want to share with admins. Fear of getting fired I guess #eltchat
olyaelt 2017-02-15T19:39:04 They used last obs action pts as focus pts for current obs. Simple but I think most effective #ELTchat @SueAnnan @ditaphillips @elawassell
teachingright 2017-02-15T19:39:29 The most important thing after observing a lesson is to give a constructive feedback.#ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:39:33 We've just started a new idea for CPD obs. Mini sigs, which you join to suit you. Own ref. pract, obs of others and share findings #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:40:40 I love it #ELTchat https://t.co/TjvFArM4PP
SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:41:18 @angelos_bollas It's fab. And the teachers are all on board because they can choose what to concentrate on #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:41:46 @teachingright Also important to teach a similar lesson and try to put into action what you've learnt #eltchat

angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:42:39 @SueAnnan sounds great! Will try it at some point #eltchat
GlenysHanson 2017-02-15T19:43:40 @angelos_bollas @olyaelt An atmosphere where Ts fear the admins is dire and not likely to encourage efficient teaching. #ELTchat

SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:43:45 @angelos_bollas Do. It really works. I love the self reflection, then seeing how others do things, then feeding back to the group #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-02-15T19:44:02 @fionaljp @olyaelt you know he was crucified about this lesson.... :-( #eltchat not a very nice critique at all
olyaelt 2017-02-15T19:44:45 A friend of mine has started doing 'fishbowl' classes at conferences (teaches a group, conf attendees observe), then discuss Scary! #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-02-15T19:45:20 @olyaelt That's really putting yourself out there #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-02-15T19:45:39 @olyaelt I have done that with real students - have been very luck it's always worked but yes, scary - anything could go wrong #ELTchat
olyaelt 2017-02-15T19:46:13 Yes, I think he's amazing for doing that. #ELTchat @SueAnnan
angelos_bollas 2017-02-15T19:46:30 @GlenysHanson @olyaelt admins should not have a say anyway. Not their job #eltchat
Marisa_C 2017-02-15T19:46:43 @olyaelt @fionaljp yes-blogger thought if this had been a delta lesson it would have failed - not the idea or the point of the risk #ELTchat

GlenysHanson 2017-02-15T19:58:54 @Marisa_C You'll have to ask Olya 'cos I don't teach any more and she does it to music. #ELTchat

aahk888 2017-02-15T20:01:05 #ELTchat Another important part is the attempt to perfectly digest the teacher being observed in order to prescribe the best medicine

ThisIsMattStott 2017-02-15T21:02:02 Advice from a recent PD on observation: don't try and teach the "perfect lesson." Teach how you would normally teach. #ELTchat

Tesol21 2017-02-15T22:48:33 It's hard to teach 'how you would normally teach' knowing you're observed #eltchat
tesolmatthew 2017-02-16T02:13:08 @Tesol21 not impossible though, if pretenses are acknowledged & dispelled and trust is shared #ELTchat

tesolmatthew 2017-02-16T02:32:59 @angelos_bollas @teachingright is that case for doing same lsson type twice in row instead of skills-sys-skills altnrting on CELTA? #ELTchat

tesolmatthew 2017-02-16T02:36:07 @GlenysHanson @Marisa_C #ELTchat there's a lot to that.
tesolmatthew 2017-02-16T02:37:44 @Marisa_C @angelos_bollas I may have an opp next week to try this. I'll try to share at least excerpts with y'all #ELTchat
tesolmatthew 2017-02-16T02:38:54 @olyaelt try my channel, which you can find through my blog (on right side thing), which you can find through my profile here #ELTchat
tesolmatthew 2017-02-16T02:40:12 @SueAnnan @teachingright @angelos_bollas there ya go :) #ELTchat though if you dig it's not hard to problematize some of that no?
tesolmatthew 2017-02-16T02:41:05 @fionaljp @olyaelt @angelos_bollas I have a whole secret YouTube stash of unlisted vids (ok it's not that big) #ELTchat
tesolmatthew 2017-02-16T02:42:24 @angelos_bollas @GlenysHanson out trainees came back from external obs today quite refreshed! T was *not* CELTA style thru and thru #ELTchat
tesolmatthew 2017-02-16T02:43:44 @teachingright why not? #ELTchat
tesolmatthew 2017-02-16T02:44:09 @SarhandiSuhail @teachingright what scheme do you use? What's the best part for you personally? #ELTchat

tesolmatthew 2017-02-16T02:47:44 2day Wk3 trainees exhausted overwhelmed. Vid obs. Inx: just watch. Try to ENJOY, just watching T, but esp. Ss. Popcorn!! @Marisa_C #ELTchat
tesolmatthew 2017-02-16T02:49:58 Can twitter specifically b used to do some kind of observation? (Periscope yeah. Pic lesson story, #ELTwhiteboard). But tweets? Uhh #ELTchat
tesolmatthew 2017-02-16T02:50:52 @GlenysHanson @angelos_bollas agree personally. Without obs I'd probably have quit teaching frustrated to be honest #ELTchat
tesolmatthew 2017-02-16T02:53:25 If CPD consisted of only that it'd probably be 1000% more effective than standard program. #ELTchat anyone with me? https://t.co/QgDGRUEZrk

ElleninEdmonton 2017-02-16T03:19:11 @Tesol21 I got observed in 2 different settings, same day, taught planned lessons: #1: too student-centred, #2: too teacher-centred!#eltchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-16T06:04:45 @tesolmatthew @teachingright this was for in-service obs; not for CELTA #eltchat
angelos_bollas 2017-02-16T06:05:46 @tesolmatthew @GlenysHanson is this part of their course? #eltchat

admiralwamy 2017-02-16T06:57:41 @Tesol21 my problem is I start 2think about what the observer is seeing, i.e what I'M doing, therefore I listen to my ss less. 1/2 #ELTchat
admiralwamy 2017-02-16T06:59:16 @Tesol21 vid obs better as they don't distract from what I'm doing. More authentic representation of my class. & I can watch! 2/2 #ELTchat
ITLegge 2017-02-16T07:51:25 @tesolmatthew @teachingright get them to observe 1st? Seeing it from other side and how useful it is could help get 'em on board #ELTchat
