From 1 February 2020, we are moving over to the TeachingEnglish website. The content on EnglishAgenda aimed at teacher educators, managers and researchers has now been transferred to www.teachingenglish.org.uk
What do I have to do?
As of 31 January 2020, EnglishAgenda will be retired and you will be automatically redirected to the relevant section on TeachingEnglish. Read on to find out where our content will be.
Where can I find information about the ELTons?
The ELTons section has moved to TeachingEnglish and we will continue to update you with the latest news of the awards for English Language Teaching innovation on the website:
Where can I find professional development content?
All existing professional development resources for teachers and teacher educators, such as articles, videos and webinar recordings, is now available in one place on the TeachingEnglish website. For ease of use, the information is logically organised according to the teacher and teacher educator CPD frameworks and by professional practices: https://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/professional-development
We will continue to bring you new content to support the professional development of teachers and teacher educators on TeachingEnglish. This includes articles, webinars, publications, practical resources and blog posts.
Where can I find publications and research awards?
We have also given publications and research an update on the new website. All information and research papers relating to the English Teaching Research Awards and the Masters Dissertation Awards have also been moved to this section on TeachingEnglish.
Resource books such as Creativity in the English language classroom and The Storytelling Handbook for example, which contain ideas and activities for use in the classroom or training room, now have their own separate section.
Case studies, insights and research publications, such as Managing Change and Creating an inclusive school environment have been placed in a new section and users can now filter titles by region and/or topic when looking for publications and research.
Publications are also listed by most recent first as well as via alphabetical listing, making our titles easier to locate:
