The second Primary Innovations Research Seminar in Bangkok, March 2008 was a regional information sharing forum where the results of British Council research were presented. There were also status reports on our projects to support teacher trainers and teachers.
Whether you are a teacher, a teacher trainer or an ELT manager, this highly relevant session provides a summary of both coaching and mentoring skills, which can be used to help people achieve their language learning goals, professional development objectives, and/or career ambitions.
What is CPD? How can we create a culture of development in your school – this talk will look at how to establish a culture of CPD in your school, how to support your teachers’ learning goals and how to tailor the CPD programme to your teachers’ needs.
In this session Fiona Dunlop explores ways of identifying what motivates the teachers you manage and how to encourage them to take ownership of their CPD in a way that will benefit not only the teacher but the organisation too. The session covers areas such as developmental observation techniques and focussed action research for teachers.

An edited collection of the papers presented at the ELT Conference with the same title in Khartoum, Sudan, March 2010. The conference highlighted the fact that demand from both the public and private sectors for graduates with good English skills is now at an unprecedented level and that the current provision of ELT at university level is in urgent need of reform. The papers focused on the key issues regarding ELT – namely curriculum reform, teacher training, language testing, using new technologies and engaging the private sector.
