jonjoTESOL 2019-06-05T18:03:24 @fionaljp Hello Fiona! #eltchat
SueAnnan 2019-06-05T18:03:42 Hi I'm here #ELTchat
MoreMsJackson 2019-06-05T18:04:40 @fionaljp I'm here for a bit #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2019-06-05T18:04:42 if you were going to work on your CPD, what would you like to discuss, or listen to ? #ELTChat
fionaljp 2019-06-05T18:05:35 @jonjoTESOL Hi Jonjo #ELTchat Thanks for the summary!
MoreMsJackson 2019-06-05T18:05:44 @fionaljp Are we talking self-directed CPD or programmes in our workplaces? #ELTchat
EWorld2019 2019-06-05T18:06:02 @SueAnnan Hello Sue & Jonjo, how are you? #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2019-06-05T18:06:11 I think I'd like some tips on teaching teens, especially for teachers who normally work with adults #ELTChat
MoreMsJackson 2019-06-05T18:06:58 @SueAnnan And how do you decide what areas to work on? #ELTchat
fionaljp 2019-06-05T18:07:12 @MoreMsJackson Good point #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2019-06-05T18:07:24 @MoreMsJackson @fionaljp Probably more in the workplace, but as we know the one size doesn't fit everyone. Self di… https://t.co/fDc88iQyEi
fionaljp 2019-06-05T18:08:08 @MoreMsJackson Are we talking generally? @SueAnnan #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2019-06-05T18:08:37 @MoreMsJackson If you can have a hand in the planning it would be better than having CPD enforced. So you could, os… https://t.co/hi7iHOcSLs

jonjoTESOL 2019-06-05T18:10:02 @EWorld2019 @SueAnnan Good, thanks! #eltchat you? I'm hungry and I might treat myself to a pizza after this chat
fionaljp 2019-06-05T18:10:39 @SueAnnan @MoreMsJackson Key issue #ELTchat Teachers need to be consulted  and needs considered for workplace CPD to be effective
SueAnnan 2019-06-05T18:10:53 I think I would include ways to use technology more efficiently for some of my colleagues #ELTchat
jonjoTESOL 2019-06-05T18:11:29 If you had to choose between more planning hours or more CPD hours, what would you choose? #eltchat
SueAnnan 2019-06-05T18:11:41 @fionaljp @MoreMsJackson I'm 100% with you on that. Some of our CPD is like p*ssing into the wind, or same old same old #ELTchat
fionaljp 2019-06-05T18:11:46 @jonjoTESOL No worries and well done! #ELTchat

SueAnnan 2019-06-05T18:12:48 @jonjoTESOL I like CPD if it hits the spot, but planning is also important. Mmm, difficult choice #ELTchat
MoreMsJackson 2019-06-05T18:13:20 Great question #ELTchat https://t.co/2xrrFfr7Rm
SueAnnan 2019-06-05T18:13:28 @jonjoTESOL @fionaljp @MoreMsJackson Is that because the CPD eats into their time? #ELTchat

MoreMsJackson 2019-06-05T18:21:07 @jonjoTESOL Yes, webinars are so often long winded. They can be interesting but no so useful. #ELTchat
fionaljp 2019-06-05T18:21:11 @SueAnnan Unless a live webinar and you can interact #ELTchat
jonjoTESOL 2019-06-05T18:21:37 @SueAnnan I've never heard of this. Sit with your colleagues, watch it, discuss it in person after? Why do you think it's static? #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2019-06-05T18:22:05 @fionaljp That sounds more like a workshop to me. But I agree. IF you are just watching, it can be deadly #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2019-06-05T18:22:58 @jonjoTESOL Because the colleagues don't want to discuss it. They want to go home #ELTchat

SueAnnan 2019-06-05T18:32:16 @jonjoTESOL @fionaljp @MoreMsJackson I like CPD with takeaways I can try out in the classroom #ELTchat
fionaljp 2019-06-05T18:33:19 @SueAnnan @jonjoTESOL @MoreMsJackson This is ideal CPD as relevant to teaching context #ELTchat

SueAnnan 2019-06-05T18:43:02 @EWorld2019 @jonjoTESOL Or just teachers with experience helping each other to grow #ELTchat
