IATEFL invite you to join them at their next thought-provoking webinar
Barbara Hoskins Sakamoto on ‘The Lives of English Language Teachers’
Saturday 19 July 2014 at 15:00 BST
Barbara and her colleagues at the International Teacher Development Institute (iTDi) have been using a variety of media to carry out narrative interviews with native and non-native English language teachers from around the world. They are looking into how both beginning and experienced teachers view the work they do, what motivates them, how they deal with challenges and how their personal and professional identities change over time. Come along to this webinar to find out how teachers are dealing with the life/work balance, gaining respect of colleagues and finding a place within the international teaching community as well as making use of professional development. Participants will also have the chance to offer their own stories and use the framework provided to locate their place in the global community of teachers.
Don’t forget, IATEFL webinars are free for both members and non-members to join in with and are excellent opportunities for professional development, so please feel free to share this link with your colleagues and friends. Please note that we are currently unable to provide certificates for attending this session.
We look forward to seeing you online on 19 July!
