lye presents: teacher talking time
Learn YOUR English Network is happy to announce its professional development series, Teacher Talking Time. TTT is a monthly, informal networking event in Toronto, Canada, to build a community of teachers who enjoy gathering and discussing teaching.
These events were conceived with LYE’s initiative in mind: to change the way teachers, educators, and institutions perceive further education in our field.
Each session will examine a specific aspect of language instruction from skills & systems to approaches - both conventional and unconventional - to reflection and best practices. We look at some theory, some activities, and then discuss and design together, as a community. Come prepared to learn, reflect, and connect.
The Aims of the Series are:
To rethink teachers’ attitudes and perceptions about language learning which may have become ritualized;
To provide alternative approaches and solutions to language learning and teaching;
To engage teachers in reflective practice;
To provide teachers with practice designing their own practical activities and test out new ideas.
