This volume is an anthology of twelve selected presentations on the theme of Assessing and Evaluating English Language Teacher Education, Teaching and Learning. This was the focus of the International Conference of English Language Teacher Educators held in Hyderabad, India from 3 to 5 March 2012.
 

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.

This workshop addresses the gulf between teaching practice as part of a pre-service course and the reality of teaching a full timetable and additional administrative tasks.

Date: 28th March 2013

Theme: 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.

About the speaker: Gillian Davidson is the Academic Operations Manager for Kaplan International Colleges in the UK and Ireland. She has taught and worked in academic management in Slovakia, Indonesia and Russia as well as the UK.

Date: 28th February 2013

Theme: In this session Fiona Dunlop will explore 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 will cover areas such as developmental observation techniques and focussed action research for teachers. Fiona will also make reference to the British Council CPD Framework and how this can be used to guide both teacher and academic manager.

This publication will interest and stimulate anyone who is involved in planning and providing education and training for teachers of English before they take up their positions in educational institutions. It brings together, in fourteen papers, a wealth of innovative, practical experiences and ideas from differing contexts across the world. We hope that it will provide a catalyst for new discussions and approaches in pre-service education, for the benefit of future teachers and their learners.

This publication constitutes the edited proceedings of the 6th International Language & Development Conference, held in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, in October 2003. The conference, which took as its theme ‘Linguistic Challenges to National Development & International Cooperation’, was co-hosted by the Ministry of Higher & Specialised Secondary Education, Republic of Uzbekistan, and by the British Council Uzbekistan.
